Hi Jim,

If you can give me details of some of the Yorkshire burials as below, then I shall see what I can do over the coming months.

Burley in Wharfedale, Colton, Danby Wiske, Halifax, Ingleton, Low Moor, Skipton and Staithes.

Some are easier for me than others, but I shall give them a go when the chance arises.

Robert

Are you in facebook? I've seen a page called inspirational woman of ww1. Lots of good stuff on there. Such as

 

Nurse Hermione Agneta Lediard, V.A.D. (1892-1918) An almost forgotten casualty of the 1914-1918 war With thanks to Liz Waller for her post on Cemeteries & Memorials of the Great War Facebook Group via Cleator Moor World War 1 Project https://www.facebook.com/moorWW1/?hc_location=ufi And thanks to Jurgen Verhulst for tagging me in the post. In Crosthwaite churchyard on the outskirts of Keswick, Cumbria in the UK’s Lake District, is the memorial to a WW1 VAD nurse (Voluntary Aid Detachement) who died of septicaemia contracted while on duty at the war hospital at Carlisle. The hospital was under the directorship of Hermione’s father, Dr Henry Ambrose Lediard. Hermione died on 3rd November 1918 and her funeral service was conducted by Canon Herdwicke Rawnsley, former Vicar of Crosthwaite church, who had also been Chaplain to King George V and Chaplain to the Border Regiment. Strangely, Nurse Lediard is not an 'official' casualty of the war and is not listed or commemorated by the War Graves Commission, even though there are many casualties who were nurses during the First World War. The case for her inclusion as an official casualty has put to the Commission several times for almost 100 years. Yet on each occasion the submission has been turned down. An 'official' Imperial War Museum photograph of Nurse Hermione Lediard even states that the septicaemia that caused her death was due to her wartime service as a Voluntary Aid Detachment nurse. Apparently this is still not regarded as a sufficient primary source of evidence. In Carlisle Cathedral there is a memorial to her wartime service and her sacrifice. In 1921 an altar frontal was dedicated to her memory by the Cathedral Dean and it continues to be used on the cathedral's High Altar for major festivals. The non-commemoration of Nurse Hermione Lediard shows how difficult it can be to be to get the War Graves Commission to add a casualty to its database.

You are probably on the right track. Found a book on line that states "One of several memorial plaques to the dead of World War I in Grangetown is in the Saltmead Gospel Hall in Maitland Place. The hall is a small, modern chapel, which replaced a much larger building, but the plaque is the original one from the early 1920s". Saltmead Presbyterian Church is at 2 Maitland Place. The road is not long and Google Earth does not show anywhere else where it could be. It is next to Dommar Guest House. Postcode is CF11 6TB. Contact name is Mr I.A. Lewis  02920 253364.Saltmead Presbyterian Church, Maitland Place, Cardiff

So I need 2 to look for near the east end of London and do you know about the family grave of dorothy Snodin. Also there is another family grave died today 8th December 1918 Winifred Mary Steele. Do you need this 1

Wayne, Winifred Steele I have and is a favourite of mine, not least because I have her medals. The other one is not Dorothy Snodin but Dorothy Snodin Castle. The grave marker commemorates the family then lists her without mentioning the surname. I think that she was not military but a nurse who happened to serve throughout the war, I have added her to my listing anyway.

 

Millwall play in Bermondsey which is south east London. If I recall correctly you generally approach that area via Dartford. A couple of possibilities are Camberwell and Brockley. The Camberwell ones are air-raid casualties and these often do not have grave markers but views of the plots are ok.

 

CAMBERWELL, OLD CEMETERY

Martha AVERY, died 20/10/17 in an air-raid. Known to be buried in this cemetery.

Ivy Mabel Makemson BRAME, died 20/10/17 and is buried in grave 25078

Lydia Elizabeth GIBSON, munition worker, died October 1916 and is known to be buried in this cemetery.

The GLASS family (Alice Maud GLASS, Emily Louise GLASS, Emma Mary GLASS and Stephen John GLASS) all died in an air-raid on the 20/10/17. They are buried in grave 85/25077.

Mary Ann LYNCH died in a zeppelin raid on the 19th May 1918 together with her son. She is buried in square 85, grave 25078.

Jessie MARTIN died in a zeppelin raid on the 9th October 1917. She is buried in grave 20578.

 

As you can see, a number of these are buried in the same grave, 25078. The Glass family are in 25077 so I am hoping that the cemetery authority made graves in some sort of date order that will find those I have been unable to provide a grave position for. I can but hope. There is a memorial in Camberwell, Old Cemetery, erected in memory of those killed in the zepellin raids. I do have a photograph of that. It just might be that this was erected on top of a mass grave to the victims - I do not know. Perhaps there is an inscription on it that will say so if you find the memorial please have a look and I can happily accept another photograph of it.

 

In case Camberwell is not covenient I have one at Brockley.

LEWISHAM, BROCKLEY CEMETERY Florence Ethel SLADE died in an air-raid on the 7th September 1915 and is buried in plot A. 1806.

 

If I am miles out on these (literally) please let me know.

Camberwell Old Cemetery has been on my "to visit" list for a while.  Like most large cemeteries it needs a bit of forward planning so as to avoid wandering in ever decreasing circles!

 

This link is to a PDF from Southwark Council.  It's for a 2012 Management Plan.  On page 48 of the PDF (page numbered 43 in the document) it does have a plan of the cemetery with plot overlays.  It would suggest that Plot 85 is just to the right of the main entrance on Forest Hill Road.  There is a mention of the memorial to the Zeppelin raid victims earlier in the document.

 

Hope this might be of use.

 

Ian
