Be wary of family heresay

There is no entry for Ernest Douglas or Douglas Ernest Lyas

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

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
