October 2017

I've just begun writing up entries on the thirty three servicemen belonging to the extended Crane family. This going to take awhile, to put it mildly. I've also been adding more people to the database - it's startling how many new names turn up. Then there are always newly released sources of information to investigate to discover possible new details for existing entries. So please don't think I've got bored with the project because the website isn't updated very often - it's just very time consuming work.

Serendipity is a wonderful thing. We visited Highgate Cemetery in July and by sheer chance came across the gravestone of Alfred Aldwinckle on our way out. He was father to a couple of the Aldwinckles with entries on the website, and I'd no idea that's where he was buried.
