As you are researching Bridgman, Have you as yet made any connection to the Stonemasons firm of Bridgmans of Lewes - a firm I researched for a History Paper at Sussex Uni

Hi again

Their stone is No 287.

It is on the bottom left hand side.   The big monument (Russian Memorial) is No 200 and it 7 further rows towards the bottom left. You know where 354 is, do you should be able to spot the stone

Hi there joysie21

If you scroll down to "reply 36" you will find all the Dumbrell burials at South Malling in date order - please note different spellings

That might help you solve the problem

Hi Peter

I have double checked both the Baptism Register and the Burial Register for 1903 - 1906,  and Leslie is not in either - strange.
Looking at the number pad on my keyboard, I notice that the 3 is directly under the 6, so its possible the wrong key was struck when entering the data.
As all the work was done in the late 90's and early 2000's I do not have access to my original work as it is in Lewes together with our original plan - but I do have a rough plan if I can find it. (I know exactly where the stones are after recording them) and copy it for you

Hi Peter

As regard Caroline:  I wouldn't expect anyone who died in the Workhouse or Infirmary to have a headstone - sorry, Caroline does not have one.

As regards Leslie Archibald - this is what we transcribed off the headstone, but his burial is not recorded in the Register

  Memorial number 156-                             

Memorial Description :-
Number of components   2                Memorial condition    OVERGROWN     
Memorial type          CROSS-CURB/SRD   Inscription condition POOR         
Material of gravestone                  Height/Length(mm)        0
Mason                                   Width(mm)                0
Number commemorated    1                Thickness(mm)            0
Inscription Method     LEAD LETTERS     Direction faced by memorial E

Memorial inscription :-
 Base:                                                                       
 In loving memory/ of our dear little babe/ Leslie Archibald/ the beloved   
 child of/ A & O Bridgman/ born June 4th died June 12 1913/                 
 Cross:                                                                     
 And Jesus called a little/ child unto him/ 

As the inscription was done in Lead letters it was clear even though the lead was starting to fall out, the peg holes were perfectly visible
