Where did you originally get the number "8" from cupcake?

From the 1939 )? on Ancestry. Perhaps I wrote 8 down instead of 89. I am just finding my way around Ancestry which I get access to at my local library.

Could be an error cupcake. No matter - the number 89 seems to be the correct one.

I am glad you have found everyone you are looking for. (excellent work Dawn)  :)

Yes I am so pleased with everyone helps Dawn deserves a Gold star.

Just wanted to add this that I found on the 1911 census on Ancestry:

Thomas R KIDMAN was a Boarder - Station Road, Corsham

Stayed with;
Wm. Goddard
Jane Goddard
Dorothy Jane  20
Thomas R KIDMAN  22  Occupation - Confectioner

So he was a confectioner when he was 22 yrs.

He married Dorothy Jane Goddard

Have a question regarding John S W Moyise - baptisim at the Parish of Stephen the Martyr,London . Can't quite make out the name of the road.  I see his father was a butler.

Oh dear how sad, they were obviously premature babies

I hope it is a nice day for Dawn to look for you, keeping it all crossed CP and I am not a pretty face with crossed eyes

Good Luck

Eventually got Seymour's death certificate. She may have been able to deliver the babies or, perhaps known she had twins, before she passed away.

The burial register confirms that Seymour is buried with her babies and that an inscribed vase was placed as a marker.
Cemetery authorities have a habit of moving aside vases and the miniature headstones frequently used on common graves to make it easier to mow the grass. I don't know E&OB, but at Acton, also managed by Ealing Council, rows of these have been put alongside the boundary walls or placed together in groups. At least they haven't been dumped, so it might be worth hunting around, albeit a tedious operation and the inscriptions on vases tend to be on the bases and now buried. Happy hunting!

It's not a common grave though, Chris, the vase is most probably lost in the passage of time.

Many of the graves in the area are without markers or headstones. Lack of family finnces in the 1930's/1940's?

I wouldn't say the council have cleared this section at the very back of the cemetery, it's fairly tidy although there are currently plenty of fallen leaves, generally little in the way of lush grass, mainly weedy. I would imagine the grounds staff are pretty nifty with leaf blowers.
