      Here's the article in PDF...the issue of Ripper Notes ( Number 18, April 2004 )

      Sorry, I wanted to edit the post and deleted it instead.

      Third mystery also solved, Robert Donston Stephenson

      I just read the Ripper Notes article and it's kind of odd for me, if I understand correctly, Ivor Edwards claimed to have discovered where Robert Donston Stephenson's grave was, but after three pages he doesn't say where it is (I repeat, I may have misunderstood). I'm afraid Ivor Edwards was wrong as Donston's grave seems to be in an area that is still intact, square K3, grave 6933. Tomorrow I'll receive a photo of the exact location, hopefully there may be a headstone though don't bear his name. The most interesting thing is that a few years later a certain Alexander Sinton was buried in the same place, and this grave was private! So who was this Mr. Sinton?

      Below I attach the map with the exact location and the cited article in pdf shared by Howard

        I found Alexander Sinton but still no idea what can link him to Donston https://www.ancestry.co.uk/family-tr...22650659/facts

        Alexander Sinton
        Birth 1839, Midlothian, Scotland
        Married 1864, Bethnal Green
        Death 1924, Islington, London

        • No idea who Alexander Sinton was. If I remember correctly it was a Peter Birchwood who found Donston's grave. Birchwood was a friend of Melvin Harris who wrote thee books on Donston as the ripper.
          I noticed on a couple of burial registers you posted that the person was murdered which is odd and not something I have seen before.

          • I wonder if Islington have records of who actually owns the plots? I know Highgate does.

              Take a quick look at the Ripper notes article, Mr. Edwards proudly claims to have found his grave while Melvin Harris did not.

                Possibly writing "murdered" was faster than writing 'shot and stabbed'. If it is of any interest I have the following page as well

                  Melvin passed away the burial place was found. I can't remember if it was before or after.

                    Doesn't matter, anyway Ivor got the wrong place, don't know Birchwood

                      • Rob, do you know anything about George Godley? Some time ago I searched all the cemeteries near where he had lived, including his hometown and the house of his son where he died (from memory).

                        • I don't, I know he lived to a ripe old age. I think 1941 he died. I will have a look.

                          • All I can find out about Godley is that he died in Ilford. Sources I have read said that his wife died in 1936. Apparently her name was Emma Adeline, but I can only find Elizabeth Ann of about the right age dying that year and she died in Winchester, Hampshire. If that is her then Winchester might be a possible.

                              ​​​​​​Thanks Rob for taking the trouble. Well, we'll have to put him on hold. Since I couldn't find it anywhere, I looked, as I told you, at Mount Noddy Cemetery at East Grinstead, but to no avail. Really Godley's would be a very good one
