Greetings: Please forgive any mistakes - I am newly registered, and unfamiliar with this Forum site... but am looking for some help on Find-A-Grave.
I live in the U.S. and am looking for someone in the London area who frequents Golder Green Crematorium. I am looking for a relative that, according to old family records, was cremated at GGC in 1937. There is no post on Find-A-Grave. I am trying to find out if his remains were interred at GGC, or perhaps returned to family.
If there is someone who visits GGC frequently, I would like to ask if there is a possibility that they might check the registry for me. I would be grateful for any forthcoming answer, and if interred there, a photo of any marker would be most appreciated. If there, I want to get posted. I would be happy if you wish to do it, or with the necessary information from GGC, I will be happy to post.
Please email me direct at bryan.charliegmail.com, or if you prefer, a message at my Contributor Account #47803704 would also be fine. I can give you the specifics for locating my relative.
Thanks for your patience with a newbie, and for any forthcoming response.

If you could provide the name of the relative, it might be a good start in finding help. Are you certain that relative isn't listed on Find A Grave already?

While doing a cemetery lookup on the main site, I found a Golders Green Crematorium in the Borough of Barnet, Greater London. Is this the place you are looking for?

I think you need to contact the Crematorium: http://www.thelondoncremation.co.uk/golders-green-crematorium/contact/ It's a big place and there's little chance of anyone finding a small plaque, even if it exists, by just wandering around. Let us know what they say.

Steven - Thanks for your response. Sorry for delay getting back; Family business took me away from this endeavor for past several weeks.
Yes, I searched Find A Grave using every possible combination of names. I had found Golders Green website, but could not find an email address on the site.
Thanks to Chris' posting, I found it and just sent them an inquiry. And yes, the one you cited is the only one I found.
I'll post results of my inquiry when (if) I get one.

Chris - Thanks for your help. Since I was unable to find an email address for Golders Green, I posted here in hopes that someone who visits GG frequently might know if they had a registry that was available for research. (Some of the cemeteries here in the U.S. will not allow Find A Grave volunteers on the property without written permission from the family under inquiry. Some small towns actually have no record of interments, other than viewing the stones!)
Anyway, thanks to your link, I found GG's email, have written them, and will post any results.

My inquiry was sent to GG about 4 a.m. London time...
Response received before noon London time.
Now, that's fast service!
(Of course, their business is pretty much dead.)
They charge L10 to research their archives, which they say are "off site". Pretty reasonable. Beats the price of air travel from U.S.!
I'm looking for a husband and wife. I have exact DOD for him, but NO IDEA when she died.
At his DOD, they were living at 56 Wynnstay Gardens, Kensington.

He: Thomas Littlejohn Feild - DOD 4/5/1937.
She: Meeta Armistead (Capehart) Feild - still living in 1937 at age 75. But she dropped off the family radar.

I suggested a 25 yr span on her, and GG said they require a more narrow window.
So - a little more research on her, and there may be hope.
Thanks so much to you both for your help!

Ancestry UK lists Meeta A Feild as dying in 1944 in London. I don't have a membership anymore but the Index of Wills and Administrations lists her a Meeta Armistead Feild and the year is also 1944.
