    I was in very close contact to Jeanne Tolkien (former Webb) until her death in 1999 or 2000. Her mother was a Jordan and her grave is also in Church of the Wood. I was there once with my son who is related to the family in Hastings. But I couldn`t remember were the graves were. There should be also a grave of a great-grand father called Webb by surname. Is there any chance of any help? We`ll be in Britain again very soon again and one highlight would be to retrace the familiy`s history.

    Greetings from Germny

    Can't believe I've found it again after all these years.
    When I was a very young girl I lived with my aunt and her family in St Leonard's, Wishing Tree Close.
    We use to visit the woods on Sunday's to pick chestnuts. It was magical and I never forgot. I am now in my seventies and after living in many parts of the world am back in the UK and am looking forward to visiting the church in the woods again and reliving the lovely old memories.
