Hi Dathai,
No, I hadn't seen that before. I've used that site before, but I think I've been concentrating on the parish records side, and overlooked the civil records. I'm going to spend some time today redressing that, I think! Unfortunately no mention on their of an ordination

Just to thank everyone, by the way - this has been very helpful!

Hi Sinann,
Thanks for the suggestion, but St Mary's appears to not be on their list. Good site though

Thanks Dathai. I'd seen the two census records before, but I'd not come across the death return

I don't know where Rossmore is but some people take some photographs when at a Cemetery and put them online as they might help others

There are some for Cork here

Maybe it is here?

Hi Hallmark. Yes, Iím aware of those resources, and have used them in the past. Iíve not found anything for this cemetery though.

Thanks for the reply Carole.

ďJeremiahĒ comes from a record in the England and Wales National Probate Calendar - the date and place of death are both mentioned and match

Yes, Iím pretty sure of the Kearney connection. The two Kearney priests mentioned on that page are confirmed as brothers of my great grandfatherís wife. The page states that he is their nephew. Itís not impossible they had another sister who also married an OíDonovan, but Iíve no record of that.

The area fits as well. In fact I seem to recall my great grandfather was married in Kilmeen (though I donít have my records to hand at the moment)

Hi,
Trying to track down the headstone of a James Jeremiah O'Donovan, buried in the above cemetery in 1962. He was the parish priest in Kilmeen from 1945 to 1962 (http://corkandross.org/priests/very-rev-james-odonovan-pp/). Various things point to him being the son of my great grandparents, but I can find no records of his existence in census records or other information I have. There is a son, Simon James, who I think may be the same person. Simon is referred to in my grandfather's (his brother's) diary, and in particular there was an entry stating he'd changed his mind about becoming a priest. I'm wondering if he changed his mind again. I'm hoping the headstone mighty make some reference to his parents/family, or help in some other way. Would it make sense for someone christened Simon James to take the name James Jeremiah when becoming a priest? Annoyingly, I was over there myself a couple of months back and could have checked if I'd realised, and it won't be until next year that I'll get another chance

Thanks,
Kevin

Thanks Marienne, that's unbelievably helpful. From the information in there I've been able to confirm three separate relationships I'd thought likely previously but could never be sure of, and opened up some interesting further avenues. It's a shame information indexed by plot isn't more widely available online!

Once again, thank you!

Hi Marienne,
That's interesting, thank you. Can I ask where you got your information on M135? My maternal grandmother, Margaret, is buried there (1918). I'd be really interested in knowing more detail (names/dates of who is buried there) if you have it, or are able to point me to where I can find it?

Lancashire / Ford Cemetry, Liverpool - headstone question
« on: Saturday 29 September 18 11:44 BST (UK)  »
Hi,
Originally posted this in a different topic, and it was suggested I repost it here - apologies if you've seen it twice!

Just been to Ford Cemetery to look for a plot (M135). Found the location, but it's part of a square area in one corner of the M section where the headstones are all missing. It doesn't seem likely the way the numbering is laid out here that these would all have been buried without headstones, so just wondering if anyone might know the history of this part of the cemetery? Looks like maybe 15 plots from the high end of each of the first 5 rows are missing. You can feel stone just under the grass, and scuffing a way bit you can see what might have been the base of a row of headstones where you'd have expected the headstones to be

Thanks,
kevin
