    Perhaps a contact with the cemetery officials might shed some light. I received some great information from the cemetery secretary where one of my several greats was buried.

    I have no idea who that would be. I think the local council deals with our cemetery. I will ask Jim when I see him Friday night, he may know. Thanks Jan.

    Maybe not Robert's mother, then.

    Meanwhile, I've found a possible death:
    KALPAXIDOU Helene - 75 - Bromley - 5A ...
    The original page number was 493, but this has been crossed out and a handwritten number inserted: 318/S, or possibly 378/S
    I'm not sure what that means, particularly the "/S" bit.

    Ah yes, the same one as AnnB found in #6

    That's the link MollyMay, it must be a family grave. E Radnor RD covers my town :)

    There is a death reg for Nina Evans age 42 Dec. qtr 1950 Merthyr T 8b 375 (there are a few others but this one looks the nearest in age to Robert)

    Could Nina be the third person in the grave and Helene a sister?

    Isn't Nina sometimes a "pet name" for Helen?

    It's a strange grave. Large white marble, Helen is on the left side and Robert on the right. The one in the middle has no inscription.

    Could Elena/Helen(e) be Robert's mother-in-law?

    I thought for a moment you were talking burial plts bu if it's the death register perhaps the 'S' is for substitute or similar. I know when keyiing for FreeBMD we found lots of similar changes & add ons in the original registery pages..

    I think sometimes a letter might refer to an entry in another quarter, but I couldn't see anything relevant under that surname in Sep 1969. Maybe it is something like Supplementary Pages, or some kind of correction to the original registration?

    After a search for the surname I came up with the following death notice - a marriage in the Nottingham district in Dec qtr 1949 seems to relate:
    Code:
    http://announcements.telegraph.co.uk/deaths/95994/faulder
    This gives one of the names already mentioned in this thread as a sibling of the deceased, and names their parents as "Theodore and Eleni Kalpaxidou, of Trapezounda and Athens".

    So the one in the grave with Robert is his mother-in-law :)

    No it isn't, she is sister of Nina - so sister in law:)

    This is getting confusing... Which "she" are we talking about? :confused:

    The memorial mentions Elena, who died in 1969, and we think she was Robert's mother-in-law.

    The death notice I found was for Elly, who died in 2009, and this Elly had a sister Nina and parents Theodore and Eleni. This appears to make her Robert's sister-in-law.

    Is that any clearer?? :eek:

    Next question: who is in the third grave? That may be one for the cemetery office.
