Naim Dangoor[edit]

Great work on Naim Dangoor. I've started an article on his grandfather, Ezra Dangoor, that I'd like to try to expand a bit more for DYK. Perhaps you might be interested in helping - for a co-credit of course! Edwardx (talk) 10:15, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Richmond Cemetery[edit]

Thanks for your help there. If you're nearby, perhaps you could pop in and take some photos (if it ever stops raining!). I was there earlier in December, but was in a rush and it was the cenotaph I was mainly interested in. I've been researching Lutyens' war memorials with a view to writing some articles, and it was only later that I realised that the cemetery was so interesting and that it didn't already have an article. I'll hopefully get round to some of the red links, especially the cenotaph, in the next few days. Oh, and happy new year! :) HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 22:36, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

An article on Richmond Cemetery was long overdue, HJ Mitchell: well done for creating and developing it. The cenotaph is fascinating and deserves to be better known. I've already taken some pictures of the cenotaph and can upload them if there aren't any already on Wikimedia Commons. Do you plan to do an article on East Sheen Cemetery too? Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2016. Headhitter (talk) 23:10, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
If you've got photos of the cenotaph, do upload them; there are a few on Commons already at c:Category:South African Memorial, Richmond, including the handful I took while I was there, but it never hurts to have more. I probably will put something together on East Sheen Cemetery, even if for no other reason than I don't like red links! Best, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 16:03, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
East Sheen Cemetery is now blue. See what you think. Not a bad way to spend a quiet bank holiday. I noticed the Lancaster memorial as I walked through, but didn't realise just how significant it was. I used your photo of it, though. All the best, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 02:56, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
Very good, Harry: your article on East Sheen Cemetery reads extremely well. Thanks for using my picture of the Lancaster memorial; it's not at all easy to photograph. I also have a picture of Roy Kinnear's grave, which I'll add after I've uploaded it to Wikimedia Commons. Best wishes Headhitter (talk) 07:58, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
You're going great guns with East Sheen Cemetery, Harry: well done! When you have time to return to your original area of interest – Richmond Cemetery – you'll find that I've uploaded several new images in Wikimedia Commons. Best wishes Headhitter (talk) 21:51, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
It's refreshing to leave all the admin stuff behind and just write something! Much as I like blocking vandals and chasing loonies around the place, it gets tedious and it's not nearly as stimulating, so while I've got a little bit of time on my hands I'll take the chance to actually add something to the encyclopaedia. I've got a couple of books in the post, but until they arrive I think I've got about as far as I can on the two cemeteries. I might look at filling in some of the red links. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 16:04, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Just a thought, but there's a Wikipedia meetup in London (at the Penderel's Oak on High Holborn) on Sunday. I happen to be on London this weekend anyway so I'll be there; if you fancied coming along I'd buy you a pint (or a coffee or whatever). Details are at m:Meetup/London/101. Best, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 15:15, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the invite: I'll try to come along. Headhitter (talk) 15:27, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 11[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Old Mortlake Burial Ground, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages JP, FRS and KCB (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

The Fox Inn, Hanwell[edit]

Can I take it that you have visited the Fox? Good watering hole and the article very much needed your input. I have contributed to this article in the past but sometimes a fresh pair of eyes are needed to see the faux pas. No pun intended (well maybe a little bit). Oh gosh, I feel embarrassed not to make some of those corrections myself.--Aspro (talk) 16:07, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, Aspro. Yes, I have occasionally been to the Fox when I've been on a cycle ride along the canal. I first went there 40 years ago when a friend of mine then lived nearby and it was his local: thankfully, it doesn't seem to have changed much! Headhitter (talk) 18:18, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Tommy Steele at Montrose House =[edit]

Not sure why you removed my update to Petersham saying that Tommy Steele lived there when this is already on the page for Montrose House. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Reesmf (talkcontribs) 14:26, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Reesmf, you didn't include a citation on the Petersham page. Headhitter (talk) 14:32, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
