    Hello everyone,

    So far I've got to the 20s page-wise for the index.

    (Memorials posted on here which are for non-UK / Irish memorials will all be linked eventually on the other thread which VP started.)

    I've hit a problem in that one post can no longer hold the entire list with the links to posts. (There has to be a content limit at some point.)

    So, we have a couple of options that I can see:

    I add over several posts on this thread, reserving a few extra (hoping I don't run out of space further down the line)

    we have a separate thread just for links to memorials, (which can include posts on this thread as well as those threads dedicated to a single memorial).

    Whichever way it is done, I'll edit in a note in the first post re-directing to index.

    Any thoughts on which is preferable, or does anyone have any other suggestions to get around this?

    Hello Diane

    I like the first post on this thread which you have now indexed, that works well.
    If you could add a number of extra posts in that would be good

    again a separate thread would work just as well

    not much help am I?
    I do like the first option all in one place with the links if you could do that.
