    1. Hi Paul,
      Just seen your March 12, 2016 comment on my blog regarding the Teasdale grave. I guess you must have seen the graves of George D Teasdale died 1937 and Adel Rose Teasdale died 1942! Any relations to you? Till the 1940s there was a police officer Teasdale in Lucknow but I cannot remember his initials. My blog came too late, long after my dad and others who would remember have gone.
      There are/were Teasdales in Mussoorie.
      Will be happy to have any details.
