Hertford Cemetary
« on: Tuesday 02 January 18 09:43 GMT (UK) »
 :) Hi there,
              First of all a happy New Year!
Is there anyone who could help me?
I'm doing research about the fallen airmen in my native town Kaggevinne.
I'm even writing a book about this event. It's my second.
I found out that somewhere in the cemetery of Hertford, on the grave of a family named Garrod, there must be a plaque commemorating Ralph's Garrodís death on the family grave, and it refers to him being buried in Kaggevinne (Belgium). Is there anyone of yours who can take some picture of this memorial plaque? On a high resolution and of a good quality? It is to illustrate my book with. I mentioned your name there.  Give credit where credit is due.

Presumably his parents marriage which would tie in with the 1917 death in Hertford registration district of  Florence E Garrod age  43  :)

Marriage June qtr 1905   
GARROD    Arthur Frederick       
ROW    Florence Elizabeth       
Hertford    3a   1205
The marriage was at St Andrews, Hertford

I would think that all we need now is the location Of Florences grave  :)

Thank you Rosie99.
You're right. He is the son of  Arthur Frederick Garrod and Florence Elisabeth Garrod (nee Rowe) of Hertford.
Unfortunately, i don't know about his grave at Hertford .  :-\
Regards
Luc

It may be worth contacting the church where his parents married to see if his mother is buried there.  You really need a location for the grave before asking someone to take a photo.  Sorry I am not local or I would go and look for you.

As far as I can see, they would be married at St Leonard's, Shoreditch.
But his cousin told me in a letter that they were buried in the cemetery of Hertford.
