VINCENT I am looking for information on the family of Alemady DAVIES born 1897 daughter of John Henry Davies. It is a very unusual name and I am hoping that it rings a bell with someone. She married Albert VINCENT in 1919 and I remember visiting them at Mogul Lane Netherend when I was a child. They both died in 1972. Mary born 1920 and John W born 1927 were two of their children.

Is there a significance to burial plot e.g. Section C 'special section'? Lived Light Green/Lyde Green, Cradley. His name is shown as Edward Walker on 1891 census (wid) and 1901 census (married to Emma May). Why did he change his christian name during this time?
