|Well the taxi there was ok we stopped at a wee garage to confirm the entry I did say it was not just a small locked gate but a gate house and so we got there ok. Armed with the flowers from a family wedding we started to look for the plot....
I knew it was grave 43 but there was one in row A which had not details the plaque was missing we took photos while the gardener we just saw went off to check the other 43 and yes it was the other plot...so sadly we picked up the flowers and went off with gardener to the plot which contained the HMS Russell men. Sadly WR Center was hardly readable his grave is marked with a huge cross and others around had details of HMS Russell so we took photos and my sister noticed the Padre Rev George A Greig from Perth in the next grave so we got him too I had written out 6 men from my database but just wrote them up in the book and took more photos it was so hot 100 or 37 which ever.
I will check up on Rev G A Greig and sort out photos soon.
