Cuthell headstone, St Mungos Dearham
« on: Tuesday 10 January 12 15:20 GMT (UK) »
Is there any out there who lives in Dearham, that would be willing to go into the churchyard and have a look for a headstone for Guy Cuthell,  d 15/10/1832 also includes James Cuthell died 4/2/1887 a second Guy d 1865.

It is in the bit that it is kept mown around the church, I do have a picture but it is taken from the side and I cannot read the inscriptions.

I would like a transcription of the head stone or a good photograph.

Hope some one can help, if you need the photograph I can forward.

Thank you so much, a great help. Didn't even know there was anything on the back, quite unusual although the
front does look quite full.

Very interesting I had found one of the infant Guy's but not 2, this will explain the discrepancy in dates. Not a lucky
name.

It makes you wonder who paid for the erection and why buried in Dearham. Up to 1880 all fairly inpoverished,
living in Nelson Street Maryport. So out of parish and not much money. One son William went on to live until his 90's
was an engineer and a board member of the Maryport coop, so maybe him.

Thank you for your help and your time.

Just an observation Frances but to me it seems that everything points to the stone being erected by James and Elizabeth.  It says in memory of Guy... I dont think one of James sons would have erected a stone to his brother and then, almost as an afterthought put in Also of James.  The use of the term "beloved grandson seems to strengthen  hunch that James was behind the erection of the stone.
