Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Why is there no photograph of a grave monument?

Most grave monument photographs within the GPR have been photographed volunteers. These volunteers will attempt to photograph all legible grave monuments with the burial ground.

However, sometimes some grave monuments are missed. There are a number of reasons that a particular grave monument has been missed:

  1. There is not a monument for that grave.
  2. The original wooden cross has rotted with age.
  3. The monument is unreadable.
  4. The stone monument has sunk into the ground and no text is visible.
  5. The monument is in an inaccessible part of the burial ground.
  6. The monument was accidently missed.
  7. The burial ground is large and the volunteer only had time to photograph a portion of it.
  8. A widow has remarried and is buried under her new name.
  9. A married woman has been buried under her maiden name.
