    The directions given by Ste540 does say St Cuthberts so we have to assume that is correct. The info we hold also says St Cuthberts.

    I have found a Facebook page for St Cuthberts Church which is regularly used. I have sent a message to the skypilot asking if the stone is in the grounds of the church. It may not have a burial plot, but quite often, cremation marker stones are laid in the grounds of the church the family use. I'll keep you posted P-C.

    Yes I know. I have all the details on the master sheet though and when I next get Grim to do an update which is a bit overdue (my fault) It will show on his ROH entry. I have entered the stone location for Sig Royal.
    Many thanks mucker. Funnily enough, I got a prompt reply from the curate of St Cuthberts saying that there were no stones in the churchyard but he suggested either Easington of Hordon. He's going to check back in the archives to see if the service was held in the church.
