    mmmm that reminds me of something I will need to root out. A church in London was demolished for an underground line (St Mark's?) and the incumbents were reburied. Bummocks Wedny, I will have to ferret that nugget out or it will really eat away at me. I feel it might have been Burfords but will need to check.

    The City of London Cemetery was used for a lot of re-burials. There is a Wiki page about the cemetery which says "The Union of Benefices Act 1860 allowed for the demolition of many unused City churches, and for the reinterment of the remains in the City of London Cemetery. The cemetery also contains inhumations from London churches destroyed during the Blitz."

    The site lists from which London churchyards the remains were taken
    https://
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_London_Cemetery_and_Crematorium

    I can remember seeing some of the memorials erected to the mass reburials.

    None of mine who moved south, but what an impressive find Wendy.

    Me too. My first thought was a computer generated cursive script, but no, variations in the formation of letters has to mean it's original handwriting.

    Aaaagggghhhh can't find it. I am sure it was a Burford, possibly Thomas and Mary they were buried in a vault and then removed when the church crypt was destroyed. Like a complete novice I have made no notes in the person file. but also just discovered a flaw in FTM, you can't search the whole database for keywords. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    aha! I am not as old and decrepit as I thought. It was St Mary Woolnoth. the crypt was sold to the railway to allow for Bank Underground to be built. The church was saved after a public outcry and shored up while the crypt was sold. But I can't find who it was I thought was mine buried there. I reckon it was Thomas and or Mary Burford as they married there in 1763 but now I need to retrace. The Burfords were the subject of many many hours of scrolling through non conformist records as most of them were quakers.

    Marvellous Ann, but on digging around my notes, I am not sure these Burfords were mine. This one was married to Mary Benn but mine was married to Mary Ingram. I know this because the non-conformist records very kindly put grandparents in! Even so this was very interesting.

    If you go to 'Edit', 'Find and Replace...' Enter in the word you are looking for and tell it to replace it with the same word. Click 'Find' and it will search for that word. If the one you want doesn't come up click 'Find Next'. You can keep doing this till the one you want is found.

    I did one on my grandfathers army number.

    it will tell you where it has been found. You can then close and go find that record.

    Perhaps that is why you now cannot find notes....they were not your Family after all of your research?

    I thank you for all of this Moggsie, it led me to the above & later to a chance discovery of Family who went to Ontario[what's new?] thence to their graves in Van Pine Cemetery-Calton, Elgin Co. .

    I noticed a few members of a family named Batty. On an Antiques Roadshow episode the other day the expert named Battie was reviewing a ceramic piece inscribed with the name of a couple named Batty and stated that all Batties irrespective of spelling were related. I wonder if there is a one name study and whether they know about the Batty family members in the list.
