My great grandfather's stone in Marlow Road cemetery East Ham East
London (an orthodox cemetery) does not have his hebrew name. I
thought this might have been because some stones in this cemetery were
destroyed by enemy action during the war but I was told this was not
the case.

I needed to know the hebrew name and contacted the United Synagogue
who were able to give me the details very quickly.

When I have looked round this particular cemetery I have noticed a
number of stones without hebrew names but the vast majority do have
Hebrew names on them.
