Anne & all
I would be very interested in look ups - von Dadelszen in the 1863
directory, the same name plus Cantlay & Bowie in the 1873 Directory. Of
even more interest would be where you can lay your hands on these
Directories as I actually live in London.
I have access to the SoG library, they don't have a vast amount on Sri Lanka
but I have found "A List Of Inscriptions On Tombstones & Monuments In
Ceylon Of Historical Or Local Interest With An Obituary Of People
Uncommemorated" by J Penry Lewis CMG very useful and they also have
Directories for 1926 & 1940 - happy do look ups in these for anyone but
probably won't be there again this side of Christmas.
