|During 2008, it became apparent that there was a Dibdin family grave at All Saints Church
Graveyard in Carshalton.
The existence of this grave must have been known about but it was only when documents and newspaper articles relating to the deaths of family members where unearthed, did the significance of the grave become clear.
In 2008 there were the following people commemorated on the Gravestone.
and added in 2008/9
The Grave was presumable
initiated for Stanley who died of pneumonia during the WW1 and was the
first born of Lionel and Cecily and William and Marian's first Grandchild. From the
recorded is seems that he was buried whereas all the others were
cremated and their remains where interned in the grave. Although
Augustine Dibdin ( Gus) who died previously in 1910 his ashes were not
buried until 1925
The grave was identified by Rosemary Lilley of Carshalton who, in November of that year, sent the following photograph and a chart giving the family details.
Joan Welburn nee Dibdin, the daughter of Lionel and Cecily Dibdin, who was living in Cumbria was pleased to accept the idea of being buried and commemorated at both this, her family grave and with her second husband's grave at Lanercost Priory.
Thanks to the help and cooperation of those at Carshalton Joan was interned with her family in the family grave.
Joan's first husband Anthony Benoit Guise is buried in Colombo, Ceylon, (Sri Lanka) as he died preparing for active service in the Royal Artillery.
Thanks to The War Graves Website, this grave was found a few years ago however the photographs of the original grave in 1944 were found in archive material only recently.
It was the off chance finding of the website Find a Grave, a site run voluntarily, in which interested photographers send in photographs of graves, that it can to light that there was a grave in Carshalton specifically for Peter Dibdin . The War Graves record offers no picture so it was assumed that he was buried in the Dibdin Grave.
All the graves shown above except the one at Lanercost can be found on the Website Find a Grave . It is fantastic that people are not only interest in the history that can be derived from graveyards but also sharing so freely their work.
