Could someone please do a look-up on William Henry Golding (died 27 October 1914) and Louisa Golding (died 8 June 1916). Apart from grave location, I am particularly interested in any birth details shown for William.

Thanks. By the way, Louisa Golding's father's name was in fact George Reed.

Can someone tell me where William Henry and Louisa are buried in Waverley Cemetery?

Hi there,
You are in luck, William and Louisa's inscriptions give their birth place and date and have two daughters buried with them.

Thank you so much for this. It certainly increases my store of knowledge and will enable me to visit the graves when I am next in the vicinity of the cemetery.

Just by way of comment, William Henry Golding seems to be one of the few Goldings who can't easily be linked to his English forbears. An exercise book dating from around the 1850s shows him as "William Golding, Goudhurst, Kent", but I can't link him with the other Goldings from Goudhurst. I thought he might have moved there, as family information suggested he might have been born in Devon, but I am inclined to think that the headstone must be correct. The information that came from my grandmother (who was his granddaughter) was that William's parents died young and that he was raised by a rich aunt, Dora Sherson Smithe (after whom his daughter Dora Sherson Golding was named), butI haven't as yet been able to trace William's parents or Dora Sherson Smithe.

Anyway, thanks again for your help - much appreciated.

Cheers!

Thank you for your reply and you are more than welcome.
There always has to be at least one in a family who isn't easy to link. :-)
