Looking for grave of great grandfather
« on: Monday 11 December 17 01:37 GMT (UK) »
Hi anyone,
I am looking for the grave and graveyard that my great grandfather Eda Khan is buried in.
My grandfather died without fulfilling his last wish to visit his fathers grave, and wanted myself to visit to ensure that a headstone has been erected.
He was in the royal Indian army and died maybe in the 30ís? Please could someone anyone give me the location of the graveyard and a picture of the grave?
Kind regards

Where did he die? Which country? Do you have any other details that might help in identifying him and a location?

Hi, thank you kindly for your response, he was born in Jhelum, Pakistan. Died in Jhansi, my dad believes he died in the 1920ís when my grandfather was 7 years old. Also he was maybe in the orchestra in the army, not sure about this. His fatherís name was Allah Ditta/ Allah Ditta Khan.
Kindest regards
