Plot at very top of Cemetery (Row 10). No headstone.

I have a great great uncle buried in the upper cemetery. He has no headstone; there used to be a wooden  cross years ago. He fought in the Boer War and could have become a Chelsea Pensioner but for the second world war. He was bombed out of London and turned up at my Nanny’s house, 17 Curtis Way. (Maud Elizabeth Draper; mother of Doris Draper q.v.). My Nanny was a remarkable women she never turned anyone away even with 9 surviving children. She had a succession of relatives who turned up having been bombed out of London. Great great uncle lived in their front room for a long while. He loved Berkhamsted and walking along the canal. His name was George Mash.”
