Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Why is there no charge?
The project was originally set up as a hobby and it was hoped that by not having a charge others would volunteer to help photograph and index cemeteries thoughout the United Kingdom and beyond. Although in the initial years of project there were few offers of help, there is now a dedicated set of volunteers.
It is a fundimental policy of the Gravestone Photographic Resource to never charge for any image it holds.
The project does however accept donations and these do help to cover the cost of providing the web site, online database, volunteer packs and other expenses.
There are also Google ads on the website which also provide some income to offset the costs of its dedicated webserver. This dedicated webserver is required to hold the huge amount of information the GPR now holds.
