Essex / Re: Forest Gate Emmanuel churchyard

I read in the Lost Cousins newsletter about the recent desecration of this graveyard - by Newham council. I don't think [for copyright reasons] I can reproduce the article, which originally came from the newsletter of Friends of Nunhead Cemetery.

Welcome to rootschat, you'll fond lots of knowledgeable and helpful people here!

Maybe have a look at this 6 inch to the mile map [dated ca 1915]
and this 25 inch to the mile
find your great aunt's address & look around for likely factories. How old was she when she died so when would she have been working?

Norfolk / London Rd Cemetery Thetford Can anyone put flowers on a grave please?
« on: Friday 19 August 22 14:15 BST (UK)  »
A big ask I know but ......a friend wanted me to find out if anyone could possibly place some flowers on a grave in London Road Cemetery, Thetford at the end of August as she is unable to get there herself for her late father's birthday. Obviously she can transfer money to cover the costs.

Please pm me if you can help. Many thanks.

Isn't the marriage from 1937 not 1938?

Thank you Tony; your own figures make it seem very likely then that DNA from Scottish ancestors still compares on the ancestry database as Scottish even when filtered through Ireland. Fascinating. It does explain my family name though!
