Robson family memorial by St Cuthbert's Church, Bellingham
« on: Wednesday 06 November 19 03:33 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,

In the course of researching our Robson ancestors, we've stumbled across this:

https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1044968

Trouble is, I can't read anything in that photograph, and it won't let me zoom in. Does anyone live near to this area and would be willing to take a look and tell me what it says? I'm not 100% sure it's my Robsons, though mine did live in the Bellingham area. Even if it's not, it'd be another piece of the puzzle, and I'm sure they'd be related somehow.

Anyway...thought it'd be worth asking. I'm all the way down in NZ, so it's a bit far for me to come take a look (as much as I'd love to do that one day.)

Cheers,

Jenni

Ah, brilliant, thanks! I've been trying to look at it on my laptop, but realised I probably could have zoomed on the iPad. Oops.

Sadly, those aren't my Robsons. Ah well. It was worth a try.
