Blimey Carol i cannot thankyou enough for finding my Grandad , thankyou to everyone else for your help to , its bought tears to my eyes , im so pleased that i can now give mum a final resting place i know she wanted .

After ringing West Herts Carol they have found him scattered and give me a location number , so all i would need to do is go to the office and get the map to go find him .



Thankyou and Big Hugs to all involved and special hugs and thanks to both Daizi and Carol

So glad to have helped Chelle- I feel very proud,as I found his death on the other thread too didn't I...as soon as you said he died in Mount Vernon I knew that Harrow registration HAD to be him,even with a surname like Green  ;D

I lost my mum in May this year and was looking her up over Christmas in the memorial book to wish her happy christmas and suddenly thought that your grandad's name was probably in the appropriate book too.

He was  ;)

Hope your mum can take comfort in that fact, now knowing where his remains lie.

All the best

I've just woken up to this (it's 11.40 but hey) and I am very impressed. Carol what a truly special find this is. Chelle you must be feeling so glad your mum can have her wish at long last.

If only this thread came about through better circumstances. Even still, what an amazing job this just proves what a fantastic site this is. All done within 24 hours! Well done guys! I am in awe!

Regards,

Matt

PS Chelle, we are always here for you :)
