I was really pleased to see the brief mention of Gunner Arthur Howard RA -Rorkes Drift.. could you identify which part of the cemetery the unmarked grave is located in and any supplimentary information about his army career? Secondly does anyone have information about a Lt Henry Valentine ( NNC) died Fort( sic) Pearson -May 1879 - also on family headstone in Brockley & Ladywell Cemetery? Regards Mike Guilfoyle

Hi Mike. Welcome to the forum. Glad you found the Article on Gunner Arthur Howard RA. Can't help with the location of the grave. But I will ask Admin to contact Andy Lee, who provided the photo.

I will start looking for information on Lt Henry Valentine. Will post any information I find.

Many thanks for accessing records on Gunner Howard..which I can add to information sheet on proposed guided walks of the cemetery..Would there be any information of this death on obituary pages ? or details of his funeral perhaps in 1935? Regards Mike

Hi Mike
Should read Herbert Valentine Jay Natal Native Contingent, B.1855 D,15 May 1879, Buried Fort Pearson Military Cemetery son of James I Jay of Lewisham.
I was at the cemetery looking for Gunner Howard when we rediscovered the family memorial to Herbert about 10 years ago.
