Is there any relation between the Hempstock in this book and the Hempstocks in The Ocean at the End of the Lane?

Tim O'neill Yes. Gaiman says “At some point in my head they became called the Hempstocks. I don’t recall why. I put some Hempstocks into Stardust, just to show that I could. And in the Graveyard Book Liza Hempstock is there, and part of the Hempstock family, and related to Daisy Hempstock [of The Ocean at the End of the Lane].”
