Trawling the SWMP I discover David McNayís post for Lanark Memorial Hall (6th May 2007). On the second WW2 panel the penultimate name is Sheila Mann, ATS.

In my records I have an Annie Mann, ATS. as recorded by CWGC, died 30th May 1941 and buried in St. Maryís R.C. Cemetery Lanark, Daughter of Peter & Mary Mann of Lanark.

Being well aware that family identification and official identification often vary would anybody have any knowledge of these possibly being the same person i.e. Sheila Annie Mann or Annie Sheila Mann?

Whatever the answer would anybody have a photograph of Annie Mannís grave in St Maryís Cemetery, Lanark?

Will be grateful for any advice or photo.

Tony

Didn't think earlier but just checked SNWM and there is an Annie J. Mann [b] with the same number as my Annie Mann. The mystery deepens.

I've photographed it for the Scottish War Graves Project but it's incomplete and I need to make a return visit. I don't have her grave photographed. I'll make a point of looking out for it.

Adam

There is no doubt they are the same person but my dilemma is who is Sheila Mann on the Lanark Memorial Hall's ROH?

Is it just possible that a badly written 'S' could be mistaken for a 'J'?

David

Thanks for your efforts, I appear to be keeping you busy at the moment.
