The Common Room / Re: Two burials in one grave?
« on: Yesterday at 17:38 »
Yes Chris, that is the headstone I am referring to. The person also buried there is Walter James Gubby who had been a trainer, jockey and turf accountant and probably would have had a fair amount of money as he sold horses in 1887 worth up to 100gns. His widow was buried in a different grave with her daughter and there is a headstone for them at Epsom.

Did you mean there were 13 buried in that particular grave? That's unbelievable!!!

There are 7 burials for the family Gubby babies who have all been given a grave number, but don't know if there will be any headstones.

I found John Richard Wilkinson in the Canadian Archives. His attestation paper says he was born in London 30 June 1878, sister Mary Smart of Gillingham Kent.

Thanks for your input but don't think the two are connected. Looks like the ex soldier was buried first, then mine, then a memorial erected to the private. Strange but the latters widow and daughter have a grave of their own.

I wanted a pic of a grave at Epsom Cemetery and someone supplied the plot no on Find a Grave, so I asked some kind person to take one for me. She posted one of that grave number but it was the wrong name for me. However on Epsom burial website they are both buried at the same site. Don't know if the two people are connected but one is a kind of war memorial of someone who served in the CEF(Canadian Expeditionary Forces). The burial date given for the private is 1year before the one I'm interested in. Any thoughts. By the way there is no headstone for the latter.
