Worcestershire Lookup Requests / Astwood Cemetery photo please!
« on: Monday 22 October 12 12:56 BST (UK)  »
Hi!  I was wondering if a kind person out there might be able to take a photo and make a note of an MI for me when they are next in Astwood Cemetery in Worcester?  I live abroad and rarely get back to UK and would love to actually see my Great Great Grandparent's headstone.

If possible, the details are as follows:

The grave is for Robert Henry Collins (year of death 1923) and Helen Kate Collins (year of death 1930).  The grave is in section 5 and is number 28448.  I have a map that I can email if needed to pinpoint the grave (which seems to be on the very edge of section 5 so I assume is on a pathway).  Section 5 (if you are standing on Astwood Road and looking into the cemetery) is at the front on the far right hand side.  The grave itself looks like it might well be on the front path nearest the road, but I cannot be sure - it is on the very edge of the section map that the council sent me.

Any offers of help would be very gratefully appreciated!

Many thanks, Nina

Hi!  I don't know if it is possible, but can anyone out there lighten the right hand side of the attached photo to 'reveal' all of my grandfather?  Many thanks!

Hi!  Here I have yet another unnamed photo from the inherited box. 

I have a vague idea as to who she might be, but that is dependent on the decade this photo was taken as to whether I am barking up the right tree ... 

I don't think the sari is much help re a date, but I was wondering if there was anyone out there who could date this photo based on the garden, flowers, covered seating area etc??????  It looks like a workhouse/old infirmary in the background, but I really have no firm idea.

I know it's probably a long shot, but any help is much appreciated!

Hi!  Another unnamed photo from the inherited box!

I believe it could be my Great Grandmother Louisa Perkins sitting at the front, but unless someone can help me with a decade in which this photo was taken, I won't be able to be certain.  It does look like her.  She died in the 1930s and if this photo was taken around that time, then it's a possibility.

I'm afraid my knowledge of dress styles over the decades is too lacking to make a decent guess!

(There is no-one else alive along my line of the family who I can ask).

Many thanks.

Hi!  Sadly yet another unnamed photo in the box of photos that I inherited.  I believe it is of my Great Uncle Len Perkins, taken between the wars.  He lived in Peckham, London all his life, then retired to Devon where he died in the 1970s.

I'm afraid that I cannot ask any family members as I am the only one left along this line!

I would really like to know if anyone recognises the park that he is in - it's such a distinctive sun dial (?) that he is standing on!

Many thanks!

Hi!  Please could anyone tell me what decade the attached photo was taken by looking at the outfits?  It is one of those irritating family photos that has no writing on the back.

My family come from south London and Devon, but I have no idea at all about this photo.

Many thanks!
