Thank you, Mel. Sarah Jane and Alfred Veevers were my great grandparents. They kept a greengrocer's shop at 8/10 Abel Street in 1881. He married Ellen two months after Sarah Jane died. That's pretty quick even for those days but he had twelve children, some of whom were still very young.

Alfred came from Colne. If anyone is researching this family, I have a little more information, but I haven't done a lot of work on them.

Do you have a picture of the gravestone Joan?
It might be amongst my folder containing stones yet to be added but just wondered if you have it.

Yes, I do have a picture, Mel. A correspondent who was going to Burnley photographed it and sent it to me. I just tried to find it on my computer but have stored it in some obscure place.

Mel, I've found the photos, three of them. Will you email me PM. I may need instructions on how to do this. Technology isn't my strongest skill.
