In November 2015 I believe there was a thread on here regarding my 3 x Great grandad George Edmunds 'the Old man of Hebburn'. He fought in the Crimea and the Indian Mutiny in the 1850's and lived to 102. Is there any way of seeing this thread as I'm looking for any snippets of info I can get regarding George. He was given full military honours at his funeral - I have a video of the funeral from 1929! He is buried in an unmarked grave in Hebburn cemetery which is sad as I believe he should be remembered in Hebburn history. To this end I am looking into getting a stone erected with details about his eventful life. If anyone has heard of George and has any info I would love to hear from you.
