  • While visiting my cousin in Granity we researched our Great Grandparents and located their graves in Westport. We were referred to the Seddonvillelle Memorial gates, which include a Henry Marr, who turns out to be our great uncle. We were not aware of him and are grateful to learn more about our family. Any further info would be welcomed. Very emotional to think of this young man succumbing at such a young age, being part of us

  • Have just discovered this great uncle while researching our great grandparents resting places. Locals advised of Seddonville Memorial gates, which have a Harry Marr on them. This turns out to be the brother of our maternal grandmother.
