Michael, there is no grave. Even Fynn hardly found it five years after her death. He pulled up the little cross and threw it into the thicket. Anna's grave is completely unimportant. The important thing is to have Anna in your middle.

Hallo at all.
I read some of the texts and I want to visit the grave of Anna (I#m sorry for my English, I'm from Germany so please forgive me ;)) I'm reading the Books at the moment and I'm very impressed of this. I also want to meet the author, but unfortunatly he died in 1999... I want to see Annas notes.
I think, that she died in 1940 or 1941 so maybe the guys who are working at East London Cemetery at Plaistow can tell where the grave is? I hope so and I want to find it! It is one of my greatest wishes in my life.

There is a new website about Syd/Fynn at finchden dot com forward slash sgh.
Also, an American production company is working on a film about Anna, still in early stages. The producer has visited the UK to interview Syd's widow and some people who knew him at Finchden Manor.

Mister God this is Anna was written by Sydney Hopkins, his nickname is Fynn. Anna was a real girl who saw things differently then most brainwashed people do. Unfortunately she died at age 7.

Thank you, John S., for your wonderful posts. Fynn and Anna and their story are an essential part of my life. Thanks to the people from Finchden Manor for all the photos of Fynn, especially the ones of him playing the piano. Blessings to you and all the others whose hearts and lives have been deeply touched by Anna's story. I know I am going to hang out with Fynn and Anna when I get to heaven, and I love "Jether" very much. I'm sure that name tickles him pink.

Following a conversation with Syd's widow, I would like to alter my previous information about him. Syd, as a teenager and young adult, lived in the East End of London in the early 1930s, when neighbours really cared for and helped each other, whatever the deprivation or poverty. He was briefly drawn towards the politics of Oswald Mosley, but soon became disillusioned. Following a fall off a cliff he suffered chronic insomnia and in 1939 was referred to Finchden Manor, Kent, a therapeutic community run by George Lyward, where he was soon invited to join the staff. I met Syd when I was sent to Finchden as a 14 year old - he was on the staff and due to an earlier serious injury walked around on his knees. (an accident where he was hit by a compartment door of a train while waiting on the platform) His way of getting around was taken as completely normal by us all. Syd was generous with his time and talents, which were many and varied. He was programming computers in the late 1950s, he could play a mean boogey-woogey on the piano, but could knock out a Chopin etude just as effectively!

Regarding whether Anna is real or "Philosophy" of Syd: Things that Anna revealed had to be actually lived, not theorized or speculated. Life Anna lived is in agreement with great Mystics/Theologians and I seem to find no false steps in her life.

Berati, perhaps it is to be found -within- as well

Hi! I´m from Argentina. I´ve read this book many years ago and i fall in love with it. Personally speaking, what makes this story magical and shocking is the question everybody makes after reading the book.. Was Anna real? I believe that it´s partially a fiction story, but I´m sure that it has many elements that are true. Maybe It´s inspired in someone very special that Syd met in his life, or maybe not. Maybe it´s totally fiction. But I think that´s not the point. This story is really beautiful and that´s the important thing!
