This is to whoever runs the site.
I have been reading the feedback and was very interested to see a note from Dawn Watson 12th Oct 2007 regarding the Springthorpes. As I am originally from Billesdon and my ancesters from Tilton (there are 11 buried in the church yard) I would very much like to contact her. I have a tremendous amount of information and pics from the area and I am building my own website as such. If you could kindly put me in touch with her or let her know I am also researching the Tilton Springthorpes I will be extremely grateful.
Thank you very much indeed.

My sister and myself visited Tilton many times during the 1940 and 50's and have fond memories of blackberry picking and afterward rabbit pie at our aunty and uncle's house - Kate and Isaac Catling. Having seen the gravestone photographs on your great site we visited Tilton a month ago to pay respects to our uncle, aunty and cousin Bill.
