Much of this website was originally dedicated to the Wonnacott Genealogy and it has been rewarding to meet Wonnacotts who have travelled through Singapore. "Cousins" from both the UK and USA have contacted us with details of their journeys to Singapore and we have delighted in meeting them and taking them on sightseeing tours. Paul's own Family Trees for both Wonnacott and Gritton can be found by following the relevant links below.
The Worldwide Wonnacott Genealogy Pages are now hosted at Wonnacott.Org
Through Paul's extensive genealogical work and the photography of gravestones for publication on the genealogy site he also has provided a full set of photographs to The War Graves Photographic Project and is the coordinator for the project activity based at the War Cemetery, Military Cemetery and Singapore Memorial here at Kranji in Singapore.
