Hi Steve,

Many thanks for your message - It's very kind of you to make a donation also, it's always appreciated.

All the best,

in Philips Park cemetery, there is someone else buried who was at Rorke's Drift (not in the battle) and met Chard. His name is Sapper William Henry Harvey RE. He is buried in a paupers grave, but I'm not sure where, but it's close to Jones' grave I believe.
