I managed to get over to the Essex Records Office, while Suzanne was at a teaching confrence. I was able to access the Ancestry website, and found they have some new features. One of particular interest was London Parish Records. I did my usual look up for Walter John but still no success. I reread his army service records but I think it will need a military historian/ expert to help. I did manage to find the parish records for Plumstead/ Woolwich. I managed to find the burial locations for my ancestors. It was great to finally find out where they are buried. They are buried at St Margrets Church in Plumstead. It was a bit sad really because the next entry to Richard William burial was simply 'boy' 'drowned' 'River Thames'. When I returned home I couldnt wait to get on the internet to get the directions to the church and go over and finally put a closure to those names (the Plumstead Brinds). In my typical Brind fashion.....the church has now been pulled down. It looks like the whole area has been redeveloped into flats. Its as though all my Brind side of the family has just been wiped out and no traces of them exsist. Their houses have all been pulled down and it now looks like their burial locations have as well.

Built in the 1850's to accommodate the then expanding working-class population of the district. There is a 1965 site plan on file and a full description in the 1959 quinquennial report in Diocesan archives (ref. DPC/206BR). Major repairs became necessary in the 1960s, and as these could not be justified the church was closed in 1968 and the parish united with St Mark. The building was demolished in 1974 and replaced with flats.
