Restoration of memorial & photograph

It is not often that we are able to connect a long lost family memorial which has been restored together with a restored photograph of that very family.

I am pleased to report therefore that the photographs below show just that. Firstly we have the memorial restoration of the BARNETT white marble memorial, carried out by the trustees of the charity and then we have an original photograph kindly supplied by Mr David England, a direct descendant of the family – before and after restoration. The restoration was carried out my Mr Jeffrey Moreau – a great supporter of the charity and Webmaster of our website – thank you both. I think you will agree that the restoration of both memorial and photograph is outstanding. Mary Ann Barnett, wife of Matthew Henry Barnett who features in the photograph is buried with her husband but sadly, her name is not inscribed on the memorial, like so many at the time, due to the expense involved. Their daughter Henrietta who is featured in the photograph went on to live a full and happy life
