JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen My great-great-grandfather Isaac DAVIDSON buried in Edmonton (U.K.) #general
I am trying to work which of the two graves at Edmonton Burial Grounds
in the UK (London area) belongs to my great-great-grandfather:-
Name | Ref-NO | Date of Death | Age at Death | PLOT | Row/Grave
DAVIDSON Isaac | B6531 | 16/07/1920 | 38 | N | 04 31
DAVIDSON Isaac | C8914 | 16/11/1931 | 50 | U | 19 26
The other one might also be a family member of mine.
My g-g-grandfather was a widower when he died. His wife's name was Sarah
(nee ALPERT) and she died in Poland/Russia before the family migrated to
They had 4 children: Alter Yossef - my great grandfather married Esther
nee FRIEDMAN; Avraham (Abraham) married Fanny nee BARULA; Dina (Diana)
married Samuel FREEDMAN; and Leah (Lillian) married a DUBOFF
The family name was originally ISMA (or ISHMA according to my
grandmother, when she was alive). Isaac with most children changed it to
DAVIDSON. Abraham, who settled in Glasgow, Scotland, changed his name to
OSMAN and lost contact with the rest of the family.
Is there anyone likely to be going to this cemetery in the near future
and does not mind taking a picture of each of the two grave stones? (Or
at least copy down the details). I am especially interested to know the
(right) Isaac's full Hebrew name.
If you are able to help this would be great. Please let me know what
remuneration you would like for expenses etc.
