Can I give a big thanks to Derek for his help and guidance in helping me to find my ancestors' graves in the London Road Cemetery. I have used his skills to cover two other cemeteries and now I can say I have achieved in finding my ancestors' graves back to the mid 1850s. I would advise anyone starting to do Family History to spend some moments looking at family grave headstones. You will be surprised what you may find, I have found uncles and aunties I did not know I had. Good on you Derek Thumbs up

As you might know, Coventry City Council has secured a development grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Big Lottery to help create plans for the £2million restoration and improvement of LRC. We want to hear your views on the Cemetery and the link below will allow us to capture your views. Please tell us; how you use the cemetery, how you would improve it and what you would like done to protect it in the future. I would like to ask that all Friends of LRC and volunteers complete and submit the online version of the questionnaire at their earliest convenience and by Friday 25th November 2016. Please feel free to re-circulate this link to any other interested parties. We would like to generate as much interest and gather as many views as possible – the information you provide is treated in confidence: http://bit.ly/londonroadcem We have also developed a hard copy questionnaire which was sent to 1,000 households in the immediate vicinity of the cemetery – a copy of the letter which accompanied these is attached. Please note that you may receive a copy of this online questionnaire via another group you have registered your email address with, but we wanted to Friends of LRC to see it before wider circulation. Below is a link to a webpage that has been developed by Coventry City Council to highlight the restoration project - we can use this to feature the project and its progress, which will include the results of the online survey as they become available. There is the potential to add more detail about the project and the proposals as it develops, in the form of bid documents as downloads, once they are in the public domain. http://www.coventry.gov.uk/lrc It contains a link to your website and some fantastic images of the area in the Flickr gallery. It is live at the moment but hasn’t been promoted until the included survey goes live. Thank you and we look forward to receiving your comments.

My name is Julia and I am a textile artist from Coventry and currently working on some creative research about the London Road Cemetery along with a local playwright. We've been particularly interested in the story of the Beech Tree move and I just want to thank you all for taking the time and trouble to research the story of the tree here. We have a sharing of our research so far on Weds 1st Feb at the Shop Front Theatre, City Arcade, at 7.30pm. So do pop down if you want to find out what we're up to. Its £2 entry and free tea and coffee. Regardless of the event, I look forward to exploring this site further. Thanks again Julia x
