We went to Hadlow cemetury in kent today, and was very successful in finding 2 G/parents buried side by side. (1943 burial)
We were so shocked to find it with no problem at all, lovely kept grave.
We were gobsmacked to know that Thomas's relatives are looking after the grave. But we havent a clue who they could be, so----
Is there anyone living in the Maybe HADLOW area?

Thomas Alfred Lane -- husband .(we visited today)


Alice Jane lane --- wife.

Have left a note among the artificial roses that the relatives left for them both,
with our phone numbers attached. Fingers crossed that we may be lucky xx

Hi Dotty, Alice janes maiden name is Alice marshall.

Thomas was born in 1870. Ah, I'm a happy bunny right now, thanks Dotty x

Many thanks echokilo for the phone links, thats brilliant x
Question Author
Oh wow. have wrote down all the phone numbers (5) and cant wait to give them a ring today x Info really appreciated
It's often the quickest route Pusskin ..... I sent letters as it was a tentative enquiry, but with the grave condition yours sounds a much more concrete link, and so I would definitely phone them ....... let us know if you find anything ..... but be prepared for folk to be cynical about your motives - that's the world today sadly - but provided you have family info to share I am sure you will be fine xx

Hiya echokilo. Have rang all 5 phone numbers, and 4 were engaged , so have left my phone number with them.
The lady I got to speak to says that she is sure she doesnt have relatives in Hadlow part of kent, and hasnt got p.c. or no knowledge of relatives buried there. So have crossed her.
Now waiting for the phone to ring ---fingers crossed ay xx

Brilliant results echkilo, dotty.

I have found 3 of my husbands cousins all living very very close to one another.
Cant go into too much detail as I want to stay a bit private.
Friday evening we had 2 phone calls from cousins, and another today --all one hour phone calls with plenty to talk about. So now trying to set a date to all meet up for a good ole natter. Fantastic news, very lucky x

Apologies! I forgot to say that I rang a newspaper and they put an advert in to say that we were looking for whoever puts flowers on Thomas + Alice's grave in the churchyard that we got to visit. Grave tenderly cared for since 1943.
