HI Ian

I was fed up and tired and freezing as a cold wind was blowing across the grave yard.  ;D so I did the best I could.

The grave looked in the same state as the previous photograph so I cleared it.

By the way Ian the grave you said was Smith is Smith not Smart !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go with your own instinct. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have spent 3 hours looking through your list and my original photographs as I only
took 40 today but kept the ones I took in 2003.

Just as well as they are quite a few no longer viewable. 

The Churchyard has a large area that is now for people's ashes so a lot of graves
are lost.

Is your index all the graves and did you do only the ones that you could read?

On William Snow's inscription it reads the same as No 6's. from Oh No In Cruelty.

Any way need an early night. Nite

I do live in Canada, but I was born in Northampton, in Far cotton, and moved to St James when I was 5. Hubby and I came to Canada when I was 22.
We are in England for a holiday every 3 years or so. And spend a week or two in Northampton so I can haunt the record office.

Hi Sandy
I cant thank you enough ! The other person who had a look at what i had done said it was SMART but i thought to myself no way surley i could not of mis read that ! and now you have proved me right, i will alter mine back to Smith !
When i did the Inscriptions i did every single grave that was standing or lieing down, every word that could be seen even just the odd letter, the only ones that i did not do where the smashed graves on the far side and inside the church ! it would be worth going into the church just to see what is there !

So it seems then my work has become a valued peice of work, with so many of the graves now gone  :( :'( 
Keep matching the pictures to the transcript, you will find you have a real treasure, !
Perhaps i should start on the ones down here in the Water Drought Dover area. before they are lost,

Well it happened again I thought I would have an early night and the Police Helicopter decided to fly
backwards and forwards for over an hour.  >:( >:( >:(

Never mind Ian at least it meant that I could look at the missing bits and try and
fill some of them in from Alan's index.

Ian some are confirming your own, obviously all need checking and some are possibles. PLease do not forget they are Burial dates unless it says Died .

It really is time for bed.  :)

Wonderful Sandy, just wonderful !
I see this all happend at around 1.30 in the morning !
Right i will check this all out when i get back from the vets
Mind you i could not sleep last night thinking about the graveyards, and how they have all gone!
Then i thought about the crem ! most there will go as you only pay for a certain amount of time then after that your plaque is removed, so yet again history dissapears. unless you keep up the payments...

Ian
Right off the the vets as it is  10 miles away

Hi Ian

I have sent them to you so that you have a copy and will remove from message now.

Also Francis's gravestone.

It is a good thing that the F.H.S are transcribing all the C of E Monumental Inscriptions for Northamptonshire.

I do my little bit by doing some Non-comformists graves as the burial records are not so available.

Hope all goes well at the vets.

Sandy
