Nice to see this photo in colour. Could you amend the text to show my uncle's correct name please. He was John Arthur VEYSEY not Vessey.ReplyDelete
He died 15/04/1947 and is buried in Abercarn Cemetery, Wales.
I have a photo of his headstone if you want a copy?
The typo has been updated! And yes! Please send a photo of the headstone and a photo of him if you have it to firstname.lastname@example.orgDelete
