hi Lyn her name was Lydia Gertrude Harris (nee Poole) her d.o.b was 28/may/1877 she died 15/jan/1941, her husband washi could you give us her name and when she was born it may help she may also have been cremated
I don't think that site has cremations. If William died in West Brom he could be buried there and she could be with him. I don't think West Brom burials are online. So you might need to find where their records are kept.
When I worked for William Bloye the Sculptor, one job I had was to carve inscriptions in the wood panels in the Lodge Hill Crematorium Not a pleasant job I will never forget the smell. One of the Forum members went there and took photosPlease tell me more
Yes, Each one by hand in the wood panels with hand-made tools, if you look closely you will, see that. Roman-style letterings. I would trace out the lettering in pencil then carve the inscription in the wood panels.Thanks, was the lettering hand carved on site then?
