Hi John,

Thank you for your speedy reply. I have sent a email off requesting the cemetery burial locations.

There are two stillborn babies that belonged to Clifford and Helen also buried at Gravesend Cemetery. Dorothy d 1903 and Margaret Grace d 1908. They are both buried in common graves.

I am living in Calgary but was born in Saskatchewan.

I really appreciate your offer of the photo, it is greatly appreciated.

Hi John,

Received the Gravesend Cemetery information.

Clifford buried in a private grave number 237a in section A45. Dorothy in 3696 and Margaret Grace is in 4481 both in section 15 now known as A39. As the girls are buried in common graves there is probably no marker.

Hi John,

Just received a email this morning indicating that Helen is also buried at Gravesend Cemetery along with I think a daughter Jean Elsie Harrod. They are interred together in number 787 GR9. This would perhaps be a common grave may have no headstone.

Again thank you for your offer, it is very kind of you.

Lillian

Hello John,

I was reviewing my genealogy searches and I see that I have not heard back from you.

You made a offer of taking photos of my Harrod ancestors at Gravesend Cemetery.

Have you had a chance to do so?

I look forward to hearing from you all information is posted on my messages to you.

Thank you in advance,

Lillian
