    Dear Sir/Madam

    I am a genealogist and researching a family tree for a client in Australia. What I have uncovered is that I believe a relative of my client was buried in the churchyard of All Saints Mountfield, having been killed in the Hither Green Rail Accident in 1967. The gentleman's details are James Gordon Melville Turner GC and he died on 5th November 1967. Can you confirm that he is buried in the churchyard, and if possible my client would like a photo of his grave. I hope you can help

    Many thanks
    Mark

      As far as I am aware, it was intended to inter his ashes in Mountfield churchyard about 10 - 15 years ago, but I don’t think the interment never happened. I think the ashes remained with his widow.

      I was walking through the church yard yesterday and noted the name Philadelphia on one of the gravestones close to the main path through the church yard. An unusual name, so possibly the relative you refer to? I'll check it out next time I'm walking there.
