There is a picture of his grave on a tree on Ancestry and says it is in
Brompton Cemetery.

Subject: [LON] STILL SEARCHING FOR A LONDON GRAVE

Some months ago I posted a request on this list; I was trying to locate
the grave in London of some ancestors. My initial query was unsuccessful
although I was most grateful for all the help and suggestions that I
received. Family lore still insists that the gravesite was in London but
so far nothing has turned up to locate it. These are the following
cemeteries that I have checked:

Brompton; Kensal Green; St. Mary’s, Kensal Green; Willesden New;
Paddington Old; Carpenders Park; Wembley Old; Alperton; Abney Park;
Fulham; Margravine (Hammersmith); Islington; East Finchley; Marylebone;
St. Marylebone; Richmond Borough Cemeteries; Hanwell (Westminster City
Council);

I also took out a short subscription to Origins.net, and have paid for a
check for the M.I.’s of the West Middlesex FHS; both were unsuccessful.

The only other cemetery that I can think of that hasn’t yet been checked
is Wandsworth. I contacted them but was told that if they did a search
on my behalf it would cost me £53 Sterling, but a personal search of
their records can be carried out free of charge.

I was wondering, therefore, if there is some kind person on this list
who lives within reach of their offices in Putney Vale who would be
prepared to go along and do a check for me?

Also, and as a last desperate measure, would anyone on this list be able
to have a look at the photo of the grave and come up with any
suggestions? I know that it’s more than a long shot – all that is shown
in the photo is the grave with headstone, almost adjacent to the
cemetery boundary wall, and with some buildings in the background. I
realise that over such a long period of time things may have changed
considerably and certain landmarks may no longer exist. The photo is in
jpeg format and has been checked for viruses with Avira.

And the names in question are: HYMETTE and WEEDE, with interments
between 1878 & 1893.

Any help will be very much appreciated!
