BULLOCKHow to add someoneHi, How do I add a grave to the churchyard of St Mary the virgin, Wooton-uner-edge, Gloucestershire. The graves of Paul W Bullock 1825 1873 and his wife Julia are there, but there is no record of it on this website. The stone is quite badly flaked and was hard to read 5 years ago, on my last visit. So it may just have been passed over. Regards Tom Carter

NEWMARCHMissing gravestoneHi, I am looking for the gravestone of William Newmarch. He was the son of William and Catherine Newmarch (I’ve requested a photo of their grave). He died in 1887 before his parents aged 26 and according to the burial records was buried by the same vicar yet I cannot see a gravestone. Could this be because it is there but illegible? I live in New Zealand so cannot come and hunt! Many thanks Margaret

HOPE. Finding location of my aunt's grave.Just wondering if you could help me? I am trying to find the location of my aunt's grave. Her maiden name was Mary Hegarty. Her married name was Mary Hope. Her husband's first name was Harry. Mary died in 1963. Harry died a few years later. I would really love to know where they are buried. They lived in Surrey, England.

TOWNSENDHigh resolution image wantedI cannot seem to be able to obtain a high resolution image of the grave stone of Mr. Townsend. It seems as if only his name is on it (not also other names such as Benedicta Bretherton and James Bretherton).

GILDERSLEEVESStanley Gildersleeves - Looking for some informationI have reason to believe that Stanley Gildersleeves is my grandfather. My mother's family emigrated from England to Canada around 1927. My grandmother would be around the same age as Stanley. My father reported upon my mother's death that her father was Stanley Gildersleeves. My mother's family name was Chiverton and she did not know her father and this information was unknown to her children till she passed. Any background on Stanley and his family would be greatly appreciated.

We believe it was as early as 1850? Kind regards Kerrie Cameron

ATKINSONWetherby Kirk Deighton Ancestors - ATKINSON AND FARRERI am a direct descendant of George Atkinson of Wetherby/Kirk Deighton. My descendant was church warden (1805-1807)of All Saints in Kirk Deighton and is buried, as is his wife (Elizabeth Farrer), in the All Saints cemetery. He died in 1822. He lived on High St. in Wetherby in the house between the Red Lion Inn and Crown Inns. His father-in-law, William Farrer, was innkeeper of the Crown Inn and is also buried in the All Saints cemetery. George Atkinson's son (also George) purchased the home on High St. during the sale of Wetherby in 1824. I have birth, marriage, and death records but would love to know if there are any other specific church records relating to the Atkinson-Farrer families. George Atkinson owned for a while a freehold (90 acres) just southeast of Kirk Deighton in the early 1800s.

BROOKESWilliam Richard Brookes, memorial inside the churchThanks for this site, it solved the mystery death date and burial of Eleanor Brookes! I wonder if there are any photographs of memorials inside the church as I have seen a list of names which contains both Eleanor and her father William Richard Brookes on that list. It was posted noting it as the index to the Mural, Monuments & Memorials inside the Church. I also wonder if WR's gravesite is somewhere in the St Nicholas churchyard? I do not see it listed.
