TOMBSTONE TUESDAY ~ William Beechey, his wife Elizabeth and 3 children–William, Helena & Margaret

My previous posts about this family can be found here:

WEDDING WEDNESDAY ~ The marriages of my great grandaunt’s husband, William James Clifford Beechey (1860-1915), England

FOLLOW UP ~ The rest of the William Beechey story–a sad ending–he and his wife and 3 children all killed in a World War I Bombing

This is the final resting place for all 5 members of the Beechey family killed in the Zeppelin bombing in London in Sep 1915, during World War I.

Here is the headstone for the family. The photo is used with permission of Steve Johnson who added the image to FindAGrave on 10 Oct 2019.  You may visit this memorial here #201989227


Names on this headstone that are connected to our family are:

William J. Beechey, his wife Elizabeth E. F. Beechey and their children, Margaret Beechey, Helena Beechey and William Beechey

May they rest in peace.

Happy hunting,

Michigan Girl
