NEWMANA big thank youThanks again for a wonderful research resource. Sometimes it’s easier to work your way backwards from a cemetery plot when you’re researching your Family history and this has proved indispensable in my research as I said before much appreciation to those that keep the site running. One piece of feedback I’m not sure how practical it is given the the age of the site. Many of the images of the gravestones are at a fairly low resolution so it is hard to pick up details on the grave stone. .... more

GOODEllen Good - Quambatook CemeteryDear Reader, the indexed date for this burial is 1956. However, in the description, it says that she is from Longford county: the problem is that these two pieces of information do not match. I have downloaded the picture, but it is not clear enough to be able to read. I do however, have a description of what is written on the gravestone, and there are no other people of the same name in the cemetery. It will e irresponsible of me to just put two n' two together, without determining the facts first.

BROADFamily HistoryThank you so much for furnishing this source of being able to find family members. This site makes family research so much easier and exciting. I was able to find the image of my 2x's great grandparents. Thank you again for your time and efforts to make this possible.

Excellent so farThis has been a real help, but I think there should be links to other sites where photos can be found. For example: theus.org.uk/category/find-grave scottishjewishcemeteries.org/search.html Of course,it would be wonderful if more graves could be photographed. The one I found Sylvia Bellman in had only been 10% photographed.

ROGERSThank youThank you so much for the excellent photo of the gravestone of Basil Leonard ROGERS. He was a Bedfordshire man and I didn't expect to find him in Yorkshire - but he was a cricketer, so that might explain it :-)

PYBUSThanksMany thanks for providing the resource, it is proving very useful in filling in the gaps in our research and saves a lot of leg work. (And to show how topical it is, it will be saving a lot of CO2 by preventing the need to drive round the country so much so is better for the planet)

DENHOLMD J Denholm War Memorial Port StanleyI was overwhelmed to see a source for a DJ Denholm. I have been searching for information on my grandfather for over 10 years. I'm not sure if I have found him but it gives me hope. My mum died in 2010 not knowing very much about him as her mum died in 1933. Thank you Barbara

IRVINE AND ROARKVery helpful resourceI was trying to ascertain whether a gentleman who had written to a family member about possible family connections was still alive. Sadly he has passed away and the image of his plaque confirmed the identity of the letter writer.

SAMPSONAdditional informationRobert Sampson Grave at Barnsley The photo does not show the full headstone so some of this extra information may actually be on the headstone .According to the burial records published by.Barnsley Cemetery the grave number is L242. The occupants are Robert Sampson of Pitt St buried 25/06/1863 William Henry Sampson of Quarry St buried 13 May 1885 Mary Clark Sampson of Quarry St buried 24 May 1885 Albert Victor Sampson of Summer St buried 23 Mar 1888 The above 3 were grandchildren of Robert and children of Robert’s son Alfred and wife Eliza Eliza Sampson buried 9 Nov 1911 - wife of Alfred.

There are several other members of this family buried at Barnsley Cemetery in Graves 16/72;F107; L 403 and G557.

THOBURN Cha? Thorburn listing correction and info: ThoburnThe name on the gravestone is “Rachael wife of John Thoburn”. She was recorded in the 1841 census for South Tanfield along with her husband. I do not know what month the census was taken, but she evidently died the same year. John Thoburn remarried in 1842 to Elizabeth Smith, whose family lived in the next dwelling. The Thoburns and at least a couple of the Smith family immigrated to Johnstown, PA, USA in 1853.
