Title: Maria Kemp
Comment: Hello, Thank you for sending me the photo of my g-g-g-grandmother Maria Kemp's gravestone which I am pleased to confirm is the right one. One comment I would like to make is that the date on the stone is 1873, not 1878 - I have her death certificate to confirm this. The death certificate does have some conflicting information - it says she died on Nov 25, not Nov 16 as it says on the stone. However, the certificate also says her husband was William but this is wrong - the name Thomas on the stone is right. Perhaps as the certificate was filled in by her son-in-law with whom she had been living explains the error. Anyway, thanks again for your help. Best regards, Mike Brock

Comment: I know my grandmother - Amy Prentice was buried in St Mary Redgrave in 1930 (at the age of 27). I was told there was no headstone but would like to sort one. I have no idea what the plot number is.
Besides having grave monument photographs, the GPR also has an image collection of most of its cemeteries, churches and war memorials.
The GPR is run by Charles Sale. He set it up in 1998 and has written all the code used by the website.
In the beginning, Charles did everything but now he has many volunteers who photogaphs cemeteries. These photographs are then used to extract all the names and other details mentioned on the monument.
To make the GPR even better, please think about photographing your local churchyard or cemetery. It is easy to register as a new volunteer.
