Hi Admin

You could if it is a nice day, walk the graveyard :lol!: He might be buried there and have a marked grave. (and no I do not know were he is buried)

To give you some idea how big the graveyard is, I have posted an aerial view.

Saltwood is small compared to Cheriton Road Cemetery, for the past few weeks i have been looking for Major Dartnells Grave, No luck so far. And not even half way yet.

Hi All
Dartnell is in the main Folkestone cemetery opposite the large supermarket. HE IS IN THE FAR RIGHT HAND CORNER ABOUT 20 Yds FROM IT A PEDESTAL WITH CROSS.
He is not alone in the cemetery, Baker-Russell, Hamilton 2/3, Boldero RN, are all in the cemetery.
Remember Percy Barrow is with Martin at Saltwood Churchyard and there is a memorial inside the church.
Nearby at Cheriton Church, you have Lewis Hope ASC, w e m Reilly RA
And at the MIlitary Graveyard at cheriton near to the military base, Raitt 80th and Doogan VC KDGs.
All within about a 10 mile square a good day out.

Well certainly a good day out. Started at 11:30 left at 15:10 unfortunately could not find George Martin’s Grave. Spoke to a church bell ringer, who kindly let me look through the church records. But again no joy. The person who would know is away and will be back next week so I shall pay him a visit to see if he can help.

Liitlehand it all ended well. In a liitle pub just down the Road (The Castle)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I bet old George Martin and Percy Barrows may have participated in a drink or two in this pub. Who know's they may have known one another.
