TcM59 - All images safely received. Many thanks.

Jim, I'll be passing through Boston after the Bank Holiday should be able to send photo of Elizabeth BEARDSALL's headstone end of that week.

Sorry didn't see the War Memorial in Billinghay - I'll probably be through there end of October if that is any good.

Cheers: Terry

ps. Thanks for the Newlyn Habour link - Cannot see a family resemblance - Andrew looks far too distinguished!

Hello Jim

I have some photos for you and I'm really pleased. I knew where Lambeth (Tooting) Cemetery was because I parked there once when visiting St Georges Hospital (bit naughty really) but what I didn't know until I looked in the A-Z was that Wandsworth (Streatham) and Wandsworth (Earlsfield) Cemeteries are very close, so I have managed to do 4 cemeteries in 1 hit. I also did Streatham Park Cemetery on route.

I had hoped to do a round trip and get to the Kingston cemeteries as well but I ran out of time. Wandsworth (Putney Vale) is actually in Kingston and Kingston-upon-Thames is in Norbiton (Who named these cemeteries :blink: ). I will try to do these as soon as I can. Also the Fulham one you gave me is Fulham (North Sheen) and is just down the road to the National Archive building so is a bit further out.

I have downloaded the ones I've got onto my PC, can you confirm your email address and I'll forward them to you.

High res. picture safely received with thanks.

I have the one for Annie Piggott but appreciate your offering. Out of interest she was a sailmaker in the QMAAC. She transferred across to the WRAF when it was formed. No doubt her skills were needed to help make the old "stringbags".

Sorry, you may already have someone on to these - but have you got a photo of the Nurses Memorial Chapel in Christchurch New Zealand, which is dedicated to the memory of the nurses who lost their lives in the sinking of the Marquette in 1915.

Snippet about it here.

If you've not already got those, maybe someone down that way could take a photo for you?

I think the only ones left in NZ are;

AUCKLAND; Waikaraka Cemetery; area 2, block O, lot no. 21A - Mary Eliza EDGE - ex NZANS

HAMILTON East Cemetery; Soldiers Sect. 10; row 1; Phoebe M. REYNOLDS, NZANS

NELSON; Wakapuaka Cemetery; Anglican block 17, plot 13; Ethel Hannah BARNES, NZANS

If any kiwis could get any of these, please do. And also the one South African in Ashburton, for Ralph of SAWGP. I have got him all the other South Africans.

Christine is correct in that I have just three photograph needs now from New Zealand. She has listed them above. Also I am aware of Amy Charlotte Melora Folliott who appears to have been attached to the New Zealand Army Nursing Service and was a casualty. Her name is not on my copy of the New Zealand Roll of Honour and her grave is not cared for by the CWGC. If anyone has any information about this woman I shall be very pleased to receive it. With regards to the Nurses Memorial Chapel I have photographs of it but thanks for mentioning it.

Hi Jim

I've been sorting through my late father's photographs of RAMC and found four photos that may be of interest to you. Two are from London 29, Sister Martha Gorbutt d. 28/7/20 QAIMNS and Sister EFM Callier d.22/6/19 QAIMNS. I agreed the London cemetaries I would go to with ChrisC then deleted your list so do not know if these were on it. The other two are Staff Nurse N Spindler and 20110 Worker, E Green.

Also, I've arranged to meet an old school mate in Kingston in a couple of weeks time so should be able to send you A E Broad and Gladys Im-Thurn.

Hello Barbara, From the first paragraph I now have all of them EXCEPT Worker E. Green. I have her as service number 20140 (not 20110) so I shall be interested to see what it says on her headstone.

I still need Broad and Im-Thurn. I do not know Gladys Im-Thurn's plot number so I suggest your having an advances word with Wandsworth (Putney Vale) Cemetery office for details on how to find it. Good hunting, Jim

Typical, I have a superb photo of Staff Nurse N Spindler's headstone, all clean with flowers in the background and poppy crosses. The picture of Worker E Green is not so good but I will scan it and email it to you.

The numbering is 20140. The | part of the 4 is a bit ground in so stands out more than the /_ part of the 4, which is faded and hard to see, especially in a bad light.

Will phone Wandsworth (PV) Cemetery before I go, thanks for the advice.

Well gang, If you don't ask you don't get. I am preparing a register of women who died during or soon after WW1 for eventual publication at my expense. I have virtually all of the names but very few illustrations. If I cannot get a photograph of the lady I am trying to get a copy of her grave headstone or name on the town/village memorial. Their graves are scattered throughout the UK and for that matter the world. I live in Devon and have photographs for Cornwall, Devon and Somerset. I also have Malta covered and various other pockets of the UK where I have visited. But with around 1600 names ANY help would be gratefully received. This is where you come in. If you are prepared to take photographs of these ladies headstones in your locality or holiday destination I should be very pleased to receive them. Just drop me a line at jimstrawbridge@coinsale.fsnet.co.uk and tell me the area which you can cover I will reply with the town/village and plot locations. I will of course acknowledge the help given against the photograph in the register. For those willing to become involved my grateful thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you. Jim Strawbridge, Devon.

Hi, Came across your quest searching for info on my grandfather. Anyhow, I'm quite often in Dalbeattie and wondered if you still need pictures from there. If you do drop me a note.

I have no requirements in Dalbeattie but wonder if Elizabeth Thompson, BRCS, is on her town memorial at Creetown. Similarly with Jemima Wilson, QMAAC at Moniaive. But, please, only if you are passing near either of these places on the way to Dalbeattie. I don't want you to go out of your way.

I will continue with the theme of "Bailey" and visit Hampstead Cemetery when the weather permits. The added bonus is that Sir William Goscombe John is also buried there.
