Would anyone be able to help me with monumental inscriptions for the Weatherby family at Leighton please. I can't seem to trace an MI survey for the graveyard. Thanks for any assistance or pointers,

Would anyone please be able to help deciphering the entry dated 1727 for the parents in this Austrian Catholic baptism register.

The register comes from Niederrussbach just northwest of Vienna.

Bedfordshire / Turvey Cemetery
« on: Sunday 23 August 15 16:12 BST (UK)  »
I was wondering would anyone know how I could confirm whether or not two of my ancestors were buried in Turvey Cemetery [I understand the churchyard was essentially closed in [1871].

Thomas WOODING died in Turvey on 18 Sep 1873; and his wife
Sarah WOODING died on 8 May 1888.

Any help much appreciated

London and Middlesex / Death - Mary ALLEN - Btw 1851 and 1863
« on: Tuesday 11 August 15 18:59 BST (UK)  »
Any suggestions on the below would be most welcome.

I'm looking for the death of a Mary ALLEN [bap Sidmouth, Devon 1807] who seems to have died btw 27 July 1851 and 1863, likely in the Camberwell / Newington area.

She appears in the 1841 census in Camberwell.
She appears in the 1851 census in Newington.
I cannot find her or indeed most of her children in the 1861 census.
By the 1871 census, her estranged husband is stated as being a widower.
In 1863, Mary's "lover" [whom she left her husband for] has had a child with her daughter [by the lawful husband] in Croydon.

Working on the balance of probability, I've found 15 or so death index records for Lambeth, Newington, Camberwell and Croydon RDs for the period concerned and I've eliminated a few through the burial records on Ancestry / Deceased Online but am no closer to establishing which might be her death. Would anyone have any pointers?

Much appreciated

World War One / Help with Royal Engineers Units [Edited]
« on: Thursday 23 April 15 17:25 BST (UK)  »
I'm wondering if anyone could help at all with establishing in which RE unit Henry Augustus Allen, born 1886 in Croydon, might have served during WW1.
He volunteered for the RE in Jan 1915 signing up as a sapper in Norwood, South London, for the duration of the war [Surrey Recruitment Registers]. He first entered a theatre of war [France] on 1 Sep 1915.
He received the Victory, War, and 1914-1915 Star Medals [rolls and medal cards available].
His service number was 63957.
I can find no service record for him and otherwise have no other details or clues about his service.
