If you click on a particular name or GPR reference number below you will see details of what information is held for that particular grave monument. If there is an image available then you will be able to order a free copy of it.
If you click on a particular church, parish or town name below then you will see details of all the grave monument images that are available for that particular location.
If there is a blank in the relationship column below then it means that this person is the first named individual on the grave monument.
If you are interested in ordering a number of different images, it may help if you list in grave order so that everyone mentioned on the same monument are listed together.
Please note that all ages and dates of birth in red have been calculated and are probably not on the monument.
You should treat the calculated dates of birth with caution as the ages given on monuments are often inaccurate.
The dates and ages on many monuments are also often hard to read.
It is therefore important to use the dates as guides as they may be incorrect.
The same person may appear many times in the above list.
This is because a person can easily be listed on many different monuments.
For instance, a person could be listed on their own grave as well as on the gravestone monuments of their children and their spouse.
Occasionally names will be duplicated because the monument has in error been photographed and indexed twice.
Where a relationship is shown as unknown, this usually means that parts of the monument are illegible and relationship cannot be read.
Where no relationship is given this means that this is normally the first name on the monument.
All the relationships on any particular monument relate to this first named individual.

Thank you so much for the photos available to search. I am not as familiar with websites as many others are so I am not sure about what I do with the thumbnail code. I copied it but I can't get the photo and Ancestry doesn't take the information as a link. I understand you don't want photos put on other websites, like Andestry, but how do you use that code? Anyone help me? (Accidentally put James with the surname after reading I should add the first name so now I am putting the same comment under just Dawson.)

Thank you for the photo of Esdras Moore Dawson's gravestone. I have been searching for this side of my family history for a long time.
Very helpful and fast service in the research of Worton Dawson connections. Thank you

This is the most fantastic site I have come across. Living in New Zealand and not being able to visit the UK and take photos is such a disappointment. Thanks to the volunteers, you are all great.

FANTASTIC. Living on the other side of the world, just to have this facility is wonderful. It helps to tighten up BDM dates.
After receiving an acknowledgement e-mail, still no sign of photo(s) three weeks later.

what a brilliant site and great service - I have not come across it before, during 3 years of on line research, as you don't cover the places where most of my Maston relations are buried.I may well volunteer to photograph them one day!
great photos quick response, free and in the next few weeks you plan to cover the churchyard and cemetery where most of my ancestors are buried- what more could anyone ask for: donation sent.
Thank you so much for your prompt reply and photos of the gravestones, the answers to a few queries in our ancestral research and such a help.
Thank you so much
Although Suffolk is only 100 odd miles away, it is still a journey that I would not be able to make.
Suffolk holds many affectionate memories for me, and to be able to see actual images of my Nan's family's graves is really very special.
You have my humble gratitude.
