    Default Photos from Ford Cemetry

    Hello,

    my ancestors, members of the O'Leary family are buried at Ford Cemetry. Since I know the section and number of the grave (RF 564), I was wondering if anyone would be willing and very kind to take a picture of the grave if anyhow somebody is visiting a dear relative there?

    I would really appreciate that. If it doesn't concern you, please feel free to ignore my post.

    Thank you very much.

    Best Regards,
    Sebastian

    Seb,

    the good news is that the headstone is still there...the not so good news is the photos aren't so good.

    In my defense the sun was unhelpful (the clearest shot of the lot is a rear view one with the sun in my favour), and the condition of the stone was poor, particularly on the left side.

    The first one is the best of a poor bunch of head on efforts, the second is a closer view of the details and the third is to give some idea of the neighbourhood (yer man is front left). The last one is to confirm it was the right grave.
