Help Request :-- family being researched: THOMPSON
Can you tell me if the information you provide for a graveyard covers all of them in that particular church? The reason I ask is that death records found for my own area indicate that more people of the same name may be interned there in which case I would need to visit personally in order to further my research. Kind regards and my thanks agin for information already provided.
Except for those cemeteries that only have one or two graves listed within the GPR, most have been photographed completely. This means that all legible grave monuments have been photographed and indexed. With older graves that are not indexed is usually because either the monument is unreadable or there is no monument. Often older graves would have simple wooden markers which over time would have become rotten and eventually disappear. This is why many old churchyards have relatively few monuments - only the rich could afford them.
