I want to thank Chris for his reply and offer.
(For the information of others searching.)
I have found that “the friends of Nunhead Cemetery”  are very helpful and would suggest anyone
Needing information about graves should contact them on the Nunhead website.
Also on FLIKA photos website there are hundreds of photos of the graves in this cemetery,
I wasn’t lucky in my search on that site but hope others maybe.
Regards Jenny

Dear Chris
I got the information from Southwark burial system
They sent me a map as well which is too big to send you. I can email it to you if ok.
The square is next to a path, they said graves may be buried in varying degrees of undergrowth.
I would appreciate any help you can offer.
Regards Jenny

I have recently found where my grandad Herbert blenkinsopp Leaton, was buried, 13th March 1919, 
alongside his parents. Jane and William.
Herbert died as a result of the Spanish flu whilst transporting foreign Troops back to British colonies after WW1, he was an engineer on a hospital ship which was then seconded to return these men to their homes. Many of his fellow crew members also died as a result of the Flu.
I wondered if anyone would be able to locate and take a photo of the grave for me.
I am disabled and also the covid issue is stopping me travelling to London.
The information is as follows:-
Nunhead cemetery Southwark, London
Square 113/30673

Thank you all for replies

I have found the email for the church and asked again if anyone could find the plaque, and maybe email me a phone photograph.

Asked a friend to login to the grave site and have the info. The grave in Nunhead is correct.
Contains 3 persons, Herbert died 1919 and his Mother Jane died 1913 also Father William died 1912.

Thank you all again for your help.

Dear Gibel
Thank you for the seaman’s information.
My husband and I went to the church about 8 years ago and couldn’t find the plaque.
Then a member of the seaman’s mission came in and we asked if he knew of it, he said no and
It maybe in a private area of the church.
I emailed the seaman’s mission on my return home and was told they didn’t have time to look.
So had to give up.
Its no longer possible for me to go back to London as I am severely disabled.
 Regards Jenny

Dear Rosie
Thank you very much for your reply
I opened the link you sent me and entered the name and date and the information came up
With cost of the grave entry of £2.00
But them it ask me to login which I did and then I had to put the name and date in again.
And it said there was no such entry.

Very weird or maybe a con to make me pay a search fee.
Have you had trouble with them.
There is no way of contacting them directly.
Regards Jenny

I am looking for a possible burial of my grandfather in the St Michael Paternoster Royal church,
London in March 1919.
Herbert Blenkinsopp Leaton. Born 1891 London
Lived in Red bull yard, Upper Thames street. (His last address prior to sailing.)
He died March 1919 in Grantham, Scotland and was an engineer on a hospital ship called “China”during WW1
His death was due to the great Flu epidemic 1918-1919. His body was returned to London after his death

Also there is supposed to be a plaque to him in the church,
Can any one shed any light on my searches.

Regards Jenny
