Some years ago there were still several headstones laying on the ground where Elmley cemetery was. One was for Florence Jane Williams - died April 13th 1898 - aged 8 months.

I could do with a photo of it - has anybody ever taken any.

 couple of photos here but no sign of Florence

Alkhamhills and grandarog,

Thanks for your replies but I am fully aware of Florence's family history and the family tree will be the one that my partner and I have created as part of our joint family history research, of which the Williams are part. I am currently writing up a potted history of the Williams family on Sheppey and was hoping for a photo of the headstone to go with it.
If you saw BBC's Countryfile last Sunday where they featured Elmley, they used some of my black and white photographs of members of the Williams family.

According to a "public tree" on Ancestry, Florence was one of fifteen children !!. Parents Edwin and Martha Elizabeth Hull (Yates). There is a pic of Edwin with horse & cart.
Can copy pic if you want, Minsterboy.
