    Good morning.
    Just a quick question to see if anyone knows about, or can guide me to, possibly obtaining a photograph of my ancestors resting place? Is there an association/group who photograph gravestones or cremation dedications?

    I live 'oop North' and they are in the City of London Cemetery and Crematorium.(She was cremated+ laid to rest in the Memorial Garden there).
    (The City of London Cemetery and Crematorium very kindly gave me exact details of location-very impressed).

    Many thanks for any info.
    (Hope this makes sense!:))

    I have just checked to see if there is a 'Friends' of the cemetery group who would undertake such but it seems not. :(

    However...

    Having had a lightbulb moment, RAOGK sprang to mind. ;) That's Random Acts Of Genealogical Kindness. I checked and the second entry down on the following link takes you to someone who covers East London/Essex border, who may be able to help.

    That is, unless one of our members lives locally who could help... :reading:

    Thank you so much for the RAOGK info ,Daft Bat-I didn't know such a thing existed.:) I'll have a gander in a mo.
    mugwort-that is SO kind of you. I appreciate the offer. If, and when, your services are available could I perhaps call on you if I don't get sorted?
    Many thanks.
