The Baldwin and Williams Grave

Sunday 19th February 2017

On Friday 17th of February Val, Billy and Bruce were very pleased to be able to show Howard Baldwin, his sister Jill and brother Gavin the family grave of their grandmother, Ruby Mary Baldwin (nee Williams). Howard laid a lovely bouquet of Spray Chrysanthemums on the grave and had also brought along a copy of their fascinating family tree which shows that their third great Uncle was Stanley Baldwin who was three times British Prime Minister during the 1920’s and 1930’s. It also showed that the author, Rudyard Kipling was Stanley Baldwin’s cousin on his mother’s side of the family. They were absolutely delighted to see the grave and were most impressed with our work in the Old Cemetery and made a very generous donation to FoSOC for which we are most grateful.
