I was mucking around on the computer this afternoon and come across my dad on Find a Grave. I was not worried he was on their site but i got cranky when i seen they had where he is buried wrong! :mad: So i did what any good daughter would do and joined up to email them and told them. At least they had the date right :rolleyes: But he is not at the Springfield Gardens Crematorium he is sitting on the bookcase at mum's place! Told them they need to change it to "ashes taken".

Its going to take a bit to get the right info noted :rolleyes: A person by the name of Glenn Nelson contributed by father's details so when i sent the request in to have it altered i was sent a email stating a copy of my request would be sent to Glenn.

"Suggested Edit
A copy of your message sent to Glenn Nelson"

then i received this from a Richie Wright and i have no idea what so ever how the hell he come into the picture :unsure:

"Richie Wright on 28 Feb 2020

Reginald Shipman (195183961)
