On the evening of 24th November 2006 Roy Brinton (RSHG Hon President) and Tony Gale (RSHG member) gave two illustrated talks at the George Street Centre in Ryde to help raise funds for the Vernon Square Society.
Lists have been added to the Featured Graves pages for July, August and September. The links for each person are not active yet, but you can search manually to find the record. The links will be added as soon as possible.
New documents have been added to the graves of Sir James Lillyman CALDWELL, and Sir John LEES and family members. All of this research was carried out by Kathie Ann Gibbs, who is a very active member, and can be found in the Cemetery most days. She has completed the transcriptions in OPC4 single handed!
A small exhibition was held in Ryde Library from 18 to 29 August. The display was a double sided set of three boards, showing some of the research carried out so far, particularly some of the stories of the people buried in the cemetery.
RSHG held two more walks in the Cemetery during Ryde Arts Festival week, one on 9th July at 2:30 and one on 14th July at 7:00. If there is sufficient interest (10-12 people) we will plan a new route for August, with different graves and stories.
