In Wednesday 28 April, l999's Evening Herald which I have posted to me from
Devon to Essex has just arrived this morning, Saturday, and I have read the
Ford Park Cemetery, Plymouth, Devon
The Plymouth, Devonport & Stonehouse Cemetery Company who own Ford Park
Cemetery are calling in the liquidators because of rising costs of
maintaining the 34 acre site following a fall in the number of burials.
The Plymouth, Devonport & Stonehouse Cemetery Company cannot sell
or otherwise dispose of the site under the terms of a Cemetery Act of 1846.
Under liquidation the Cemetery becomes the property of the Crown so it will
Government who decide its future.
The gates will be locked to the public so there can be no searches for family
historians and also no visits to the graves of lost loved ones.

The famous shipbuilders in Topsham were the Holmans, although there may
have been smaller yards - is there any way that you are misreading a
flowery 'H' as 'St'? 'w' and 'm' are often confusable in old records.

I,m new to the Devon list and require some assistance in my research. My
area of reseach is the surname "Noon" and I seem to have hit a brick wall.
My search has been in the Stone, Staff. area and has come to a halt but with
the assistance of a gentleman in Stafford it is quite possible that one or
more of my clan may have settled in Toquay, Devon and possibly has married
into the family of "Mosley". I have no idea of the year that this move took
place and it is only a shot in the dark.
Any help would be appreciated.

I want to thank everyone who gave me answers to my question about Stoke
Damerel. It has made it easier to research the records I've ordered from
LDS. It also makes it easier to understand the local of Plymouth as we
plan to visit next fall to do reasearch.
Can anyone suggest a web site that I can "order" brochures about
England? I've found several with lots of info. but would like to have
something sent to my home. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Congratulations on a super set of pages about Pinn Hamlet in Otterton.
I've made a link to them from the GENUKI/Devon parish page for Otterton,
and also from the pages for Sidmouth, East Budleigh, Bicton, in view of the
material you've also got on these neighbouring places.

Re the apprenticeship papers of William Henry Cann, Henry George and Alfred
"Stolwau" were members of the leading 19th century shipbuilding family in
Topsham, the Holmans. I believe there is much about their firm in the
Topsham Museum, which I have never yet found open.
In about a week's time, I will be travelling to Lancs for about a month, so
this is to remind everyone that if you come across the name START, please
send it to me privately so I don't miss anything. Thanks.

column in our local Perth paper - and received responses from that.
