Famous people who have lived in Folkestone

I'm looking for help online with a puzzle that a friend at work has set, it relates to a famous grave and plaque in Folkestone somewhere. No joy yet, but I did find this PDF of Folkestone Town Crier (the newsletter of the town council). It has a crossword with these clues:


1) Which famous Seamen's Friend is buried in St Martins Grave? (8) 2) He played British Agent Harry Palmer in the Ipcress File. (5) 3) Don't wait up for this smooth talking charmer. (11) 4) Who was Jimi Hendrix's Bass player? (4) 5) This member of a famous banking family lived here in 1815. (10) 6) Whose plaque is mounted in Albion Villas? (7) Down:

1) Who was "Just Good Friends" with Jan Francis? (12) 7) Who was the creator of Frankenstein that took up residence in Folkestone in 1830?(11) 8) He played a cameo role in the Italian Job with 2 across. (10) 9) This writer found it murder on the Orient Express(6) 10) This actor was "To the Manor Born". (5) 11) Carry on Matron. (6) 12) A famous violinist who's (sic) school of performers have played at the Leas Cliff Hall. (6) 13) This actor played Mr Banks in Mary Poppins. (5)

Even more interestingly it says the las quiz was won by Heather Mills.

This is part of my website The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places and stuff, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
