Part 494r – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Final Resting Place – Alexander Pirie and Elizabeth Charlotte (née Merrifield) Robertson

14 April 2011


There is a feeling of success when a piece of the puzzle of the search for an ancestor falls into to place. This, to me is one of those moments.

Helen and Kevin have located and photographed the headstone of the grave of great-grandparents Alexander Pirie and Elizabeth Charlotte (née Merrifield) Robertson. Thank you ever so much for sending me the image.

Great-grandmother Elizabeth Charlotte (née Merrifield) passed away 20 June 1926 at the age of 70 years. Great-grandfather Alexander Pirie Robertson died 20 October 1939. He was 84 years old. From the records I have been able to gather they had lived at 96 Alexandra Park Road, Wood Green, Edmonton in Middlesex, England.

See Part 80m for an image of the 1926 Certified Copy of An Entry Of Death for great-grandmother Elizabeth Charlotte Robertson. Also see Part 493r for a copy of the 1939 Entry of Death for great-grandfather Alexander Pirie Robertson.

Their burial site is in the cemetery grounds of East Finchley Cemetery, London. The distance today from the Cemetery to 96 Alexandra Park Road is about 2.4 miles or 3.9 kilometers.

The following images, including the satellite view are of East Finchley Cemetery originally called St. Marylebone Cemetery which I found via Google.
