RE: Robert Bowyer 1552 146239955
Before 1850 the parish of St Peter the Great used the nave of the cathedral as its 'church'. So technically those buried there should be listed in the cathedral. I've come across other instances like that in other large churches before. It seems really strange to us today. I moved Bowyer's memorial to the cathedral listing.

VAUGHAN in Anglican Section AAA
I am a bit confused by entries in the on-line Cemetery Index. I thought it looked like there may have been another plot in the same section, but now am unsure.
Plots as follows:
279 - Louisa Christina (1895); Henry (1914).
280 - Alfred Edward (1939), Alice Mary Lillian (1924), Thomas (1958).
281 - Walter Oliver (1911), Lydia Lillian (1897).
And:
319 - Henry E. (1901), Stanley R. (1903), Alice (1948), Mary A. (1902).
321 - Ethel (1922).
I wonder now if 319 and 321 are in the other row backing 279, 280, 281 - however, the obelisk plot does look like it is only two plots by two. Will investigate when I go back to clean the plaques.

RE: Vaughan
Some of the inscribed plaques could do with a clean - did not have the equipment last visit, and will see about retaking them when I get the chance.

RE: Vaughan
I think you've missed what I'm saying. You (or someone else) has linked Henry Edward Vaughan (memorial 97807051) as the father of Henry Neatby Vaughan. As you also have their mother as Charlotte, Find A Grave shows Henry Edward as both father & brother. It's an error. The father is the wrong person.

You'll wait a long time for them to do that. I tried with two entries for one cemetery in my local area and they still hadn't done anything after more than a year, despite two requests.
It would be better to add your records to the cemetery I entered and ask them to delete the cemetery entry you made.

Yes, you have added this cemetery when my entry for it was already there. I'd appreciate it if you would transfer your pages to my original and eliminate the duplicate.

RE: S.A.G. transcription on findmypast.co.uk
Stands for Society of Australian Genealogists. I am a member. It made a complete transcription of all Monumental Inscriptions in the 1980's for all denominations at Rookwood, as well as Waverley and South Head Cemeteries.
It was just before I joined, so I was not involved then.
Over the last decade or so, the Society has licensed the Findmypast.co.uk web-site to reproduce digital images of these transcriptions. When I create a list of Findagrave photo requests for these three cemeteries, I always check the transcriptions first, to see if there was a gravestone on the plot in the 1980s - it certainly makes the plot easier to find.
The S.A.G. introduced a system of Row numbering for the transcription program, and when I edit Plot locations (many are in error, incorrectly relabelling the section as a row), I usually remove the Row number into parenthesis with the S.A.G. reference, just to conform to copyright requirements as regards to source citation.

RE: Samuel Cover
The tree growing in the plot was too sturdy to move, but I managed to strip excess foliage to reveal the stone. I will re-photograph the stone when the light angle is better, and the shadow of the tree trunk moves to the side of the inscription.

William COVER at Rookwood
The right photo has now been posted for William and Eliza COVER. The stone had fallen forward onto the plot, and it took some time to turn it over.

William COVER at Rookwood
I sincerely regret that the photos I posted for William COVER are not the right ones. The right plot is 13 plots distant in the adjacent Row, and I will take a photo of it next time I visit. I discovered this after cleaning up the fallen stone, and finding inscriptions for Eliza Ann WILLIAMS and her sons Samuel Foster and John Rayner WILLIAMS.
