366451Martha TateFurther information can be read from this gravestone. John and Martha Tate lived at Guyzance and Martha died on August 8th 1822 John Tate died on April 23rd, but it is not possible to read the year. The information about Guyzance means that this is the couple whose burial place and gravestone I wished to discover.20200927

318086Mary HoughtonThe Headstone is cut-off. The image did not transfer as only the top portion is visible. It lists Mary Houghton and Grandson Michael Thomas Ferneley.20200729
114278Lionel John Neville NevilleLionel's wife Agnes Lillian Fife Neville died on 19 August 1956, not in 1936.20200727

235949Robert HodgsonThis is not an error of information, rather an inability to upload the thumbnail link. I am at a loss as to how to follow your instructions as i don't wish to breach copyright. I have tried numerous ways and cannot get an image. Thanks Rachel20200709
291957Emilie Miriam MillerI think the death/burial year for this person is 1911, rather than 1971. GRO Death Ref: MILLER, EMILY MIRIAM 43 GRO Reference: 1911 D Quarter in GUISBOROUGH Volume 09D Page 621 I believe this person is Emily/Emilie Miriam MILLER, nee BALGUE, who married George Laidler MILLER in 1899. This couple lived at the Queen's Hotel in Redcar. George L Miller's mother was Elizabeth Miller (nee Laidler) - who died in 1912 and is buried in the same plot as her daughter in law Emilie/Emily Mirian Miller 1868-1911.20200704
131839KatherineActual inscription: Katherine Burk, relict of Wm. Griffin, died May 3, 1899, age 61 years. So her last name is not Burk; it is Griffin. Her death year is not 1898; it is 1899 (as can be seen from the outer shape of the last digit). Her birth year is therefore about 1838, not 1837. Thank you. 20200624
74802Sarah PriceAlfred Price was the son of Sarah Price. Isabella Price was his wife. Anna M Price was their eldest daughter. Alfred D Price was their 3rd son.20200624
198687Albert Charles FreshwaterShould be Alfred Charles Freshwater20200623
271872Lelly KnightUnfortunately when I requested the photograph, I received a photograph of Mary Booth's tombstone instead at this link so something has unfortunately gone wrong: With many thanks Francis20200622
71414Cissie GrafhamThe ages of Cissie Grafham and George T Grafham are both given as 255. Presumably, this is a default value because their ages are not given on the gravestone. It results in both being given invalid birth dates, which might confuse naive researchers. It might be better to use some other default for missing dates.20200621
151555Selina AntellSurname should be AXTELL. All other details are correct20200621
344725Francis WrightThis gravestone image does not contain details of Francis Wright. Hopefully this is helpful. Please note, This is the first time I have found an error on may visits, I always find it a helpful and useful site. Best regards, Guy20200610
140762SarahSarah was William Besley's wife not sister Died 28 March, 1938. Richard Besley died in 1890.20200608
67638E Norton EldridThe picture shown is for Edward John Huggins and not E Norton Eldrid.20200607
377588John Thorley SykesJohn Thorley Sykes and Mary Louise Sykes were husband and wife.20200605

373295JohnThe gravestone listed as John William Shephard, should be (as is clear on your photo and ones I have taken since) Joseph William Shephard.20200527
38218James HawksfordDate of birth is 25th March 1832. His age was 72.20200522
131313Robert Oldham MacfarlaneDate of burial/death should be 1840. As per notice in local paper & other records.20200519
388733George ReedGeorge Reed died in 1901 in the Royal Infirmary in Newcastle (the eroded figure would have been a zero and not a 3). He was born in 1844 which makes him 57 years old at his death as shown on the gravestone. (This removes the evident anomalies in the record which make it look as though the second person on the gravestone pre-deceased the first and that the husband was born full 29 years after his wife.)20200517
63113Minnie DawsonDate of death for Minnie Dawson is 1964, not 1961 as transcribed. The date is a bit blurred in the photo, but appears in England & Wales, Civil Registration Death Index, 1916-2007 (on Ancestry) as 4th Quarter of 1964 in Samford, aged 86.20200516
234948John ForsterAge at death is 84, not 94. So DOB more likely 1807.20200509
11843Nathaniel MathewFirst name on grave is Mary, wife of Nathaniel Mathew (nee Windus). Relationship shown in Notes is incorrect: Edward Windus Mathew 1812-1889 was the son of Nathaniel Mathew by his wife Mary (Windus).20200506
800207Ida CrosslandThe relationship notes suggest that Marjorie Crossland is Ida Crossland's aunt. They are in fact sisters. The mention of 'daughter' on the grave refers to the fact that their mother Kate Crossland was still alive when Ida died. Harry and Kate Crossland are buried together in another plot at Stonefall.20200501
107372William Websterdaughter, Alice Hardaker age at death is incorrect should be 63 years not 83 yrs. Ages vary between typed text and then you view the photo. 20200425
128795Malcolm Alvar LummisDetails state that family name is Alvar - the family name is LUMMIS. The name Alvar is a forename given to him at birth, and came from Alvar Liddell who was a BBC newscaster during the Second World War when Malcolm was born. He was my brother.20200424

357715Unna von DitfurthGiven name of the sister of Anna von Ditfurth is Ottilie, not Dttilie (german Fraktur letters ...). Compare capital O of Ottilie and capital D of Ditfurth.20200422
357715Unna von DitfurthGiven name is Anna, not Unna (german Fraktur letters are not easy to read).20200422
176575John Hennessy McDonaldJohn Hennessy McDonald grandfather of John Hennessy McDonald SHOULD READ John Hennessy Esq. of Mebourne. JHMcD's mother Annie's maiden name was Hennessy and the grandfather referred to is her father. The wording on the headstone is correct. Thank you Maureen Stavely20200422
240573William Raymond SwinburnYear of death for William Raymond Swinburn born 1870 should be 1913 not 1912. Clearly stated on gravestone Thank you20200420

357735Hans Deitrich von DitfurthThe name is Hans Dietrich von Ditfurth not Deitrich.20200414

16140Thomas BeverleyThomas Beverley grave transcription very poor condition (also completed using information from tree records). items in brackets are where information is not precise. This may be useful to anyone using your database, and will clarify the entries in the database as different people have the same name, and not all the people in the grave are on the website - owing to having the same name.FOr clarity Joseph was also a son of Thomas, and both Thomas and Joseph had wives called Jane, and these are both in this grave when the wording that can be made out is compared to the family tree records. SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF THOMAS BEVERLEY OF LOOSEHILL WHO DIED FEBY 8 1874 AGED 59 YEARS _______ ALSO OF JANE HIS WIFE, WHO DIED MARCH 1(6)TH 1888, IN HER 73RD YEAR.

693554RobertRobert (my great, great grandfather) died 09/10/1900 and not 09/10/1908. This fact is confirmed by The England and Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations) and reports in a variety of local newspapers of the time. 20200315

632565Francis Hungerford DaubenyThere is an error in the others listed on this entry. Francis is listed as a parent to children born before him. I don't see their names anywhere on the stone. I wonder if there was some kind of a mix-up.20200222
753519Henry James HungerfordThe correct name is Henry Jones Hungerford. He was born 20 Sep 1825 in Cahirmore, Cork, Ireland and died 20 Nov 1905 in Clonakilty, Cork, Ireland.20200222

183637James Alfred PycroftJames Alfred PYCROFT's wife was Olive S(arah) as per the first part of this gravestone inscription. Therefore I believe the second named person should be Olive Sarah and not June Sarah. The firstname of the second person buried (the also of) is unclear on the gravestone but I believe the first letter can be made out as O (rather than J). The date of death of this second person appears to be Jan 5th 196[6?]. According to the National Probate Calendar, Olive Sarah PYCROFT of Nightingale Cottage, Dilham, Nfk died 5 January 1966. Therefore I believe this second person is Olive Sarah PYCROFT, the wife of James Alfred PYCROFT. Many thanks for all your work on this resource.2019092920191002
