  1. No living Ashcroft relatives found for Sidney, after a lot of research and the story in the newspapers. to many Ashcroft with the same names, we followed up every clue we had.
  2. St Helens Townships Family History Society did a lot of research on this man trying to find his St Helens Family, his father came from St Helens, Sydney was born in St Helens. The story was in the Reporter and the Star to try and find a local living relative. Dr Gilly Carr contacted the society for help. His mothers relative where found by Tunbridge Wells Family History society Dr Gilly Carr, Tunbridge Wells F H S and St Helens Townships F H S worked together on this research. nice to see he has now got a monument on his grave.
  3. The Friends of the Cemetery have a service where they will put flowers on a grave for you, if you contact them they will give you all the information. email hello@friendsofsthelenscemetery.co.uk web site www.friendsofsthelenscemetery.co.uk
