So why would you put Ernest Douglas on his gravestone, but only register his death as Ernest?

Surely if you knew for a "fact" his middle name was Douglas, it would have been mentioned

Some people take more notice of gossip than they do of documentary evidence

Hi Reggie

I will have to look into Robert more deeply thank you.

btw it was always an in family joke that Grandad was vain enough to name his son the opposite way round to his own hence Ernest Douglas and Douglas Ernest. Brenda (sister of Douglas Ernest) was always relieved that she was not named Maud Ivy. ha ha

Once again thanks for your time and effort

Fiona :-D

You may have put 'Douglas' on the gravestone, but the name does not appear on any OFFICIAL online records about the man.

Any comment on the info about ROBERT?

Thanks once again everyone

Barry - had a look at the tree and will be making contact thank you.

Reggie - Ernest Douglas was grandfather and Douglas Ernest was son but always known as Ernie. I am trying to get my little brother to go through boxes of documents and paperwork that he has to see if ha can find any certificates and such like.

Brummiejan - Ernest Douglas and Ivy Maud are definite names as we had them put on gravestones.

Chris Ho - thanks for info and probably buried in same cemetery as nana and grandad and only managed to get half done when last 'graveyard hopping'.

The ONLY way to be sure that anything is a fact is to spend money on certs

GR members can only post info found on line...........we can't say whether it is accurate........or not.
