Judy,

I don't know how big KG St Mary's is, but could I ask for:

Second Lieutenant EDWARD JOSEPH DILLON M M

7th Training Depot Station., Royal Air Force

who died age 23 on 12 April 1918

Son of Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Dillon, of 149, Walm Lane, Willesden Green, London. Born at St. Mary Cray, Kent.

KENSAL GREEN (ST. MARY'S) ROMAN CATHOLIC CEMETERY

grave 8117

I think it is a family grave, rather than a CWGC headstone.

Many thanks in advance

Kate

Hi Kate

Most certainly I will try (and if I don't find it I'll go back). I am most persistent as some members will know (!)

You're a Pal, Judy. Fingers crossed for a sunny day.

Chris & Kate - I was at Kensal Green today on a mission for my dad, and added your 'wants' to my list in case I had time.

Well, I did have time and I have photos of the graves, so if Judy didn't manage to get them today or if you would like more just PM me an email address (not you Chris, I've already got yours :)) and I'll send them to you.

A Forum Pal has sent me a PM about a very special mission and I am going back to St Mary's Cemetery tomorrow. If anyone else would like a photo either there or at Kensal Green, please PM before around 10am tomorrow.

Kind regards

Judy

Judy - Can I ask if you are taking a photo of the Mitson grave?

I only ask because I have also been asked for a photo of said grave, and if you are able to take it I'll cross it off my list as I won't be back at Kensal Green for a couple of weeks, and it will save the recipient waiting too long for the photo.

An undercover mission in a cemetery?

Many thanks to Judy and Wesley. How long did it take to locate the Dillon grave?

Not too long...but then the very sweet lady on the gate did lend me her map - I'd never have found Dad's list of requirements without it! :lol:

Yes Wesley, to start I PM'ed both of you and Judy indicated she is going tomorrow. So cross him off your list, and thanks very much for your kind offer.

Cheers, Peter
