I have visited Captain Walter Henry Parker gravesite at Brookwood Cemetery Surrey UK the same place as where Sir Cosmo Duff-Gordon and his wife Lady Lucy first class passengers whom survived the sinking. Also Captain Smith wife and daughter are buried there too. Parker was the Captain of RMS Olympic for about one year 1928-1929 before retiring at the age of 60. Finding his gravesite with the other 250,000 certainty was time consuming to find. The gravesite has been badly neglected over the years and difficult to read the headstone. The engraving at the top is of a 3 or 4 mast schooner sailing ship. I have ask permission for to be clean up, but warn could take many months before permission is granted, as the owner has to be found first!
