Please note that all ages and dates of birth listed in the above list that are shown in red have been calculated and are probably not on the monument.
You should treat the calculated dates of birth with caution as the ages given on monuments are often inaccurate.
The dates and ages on many monuments are also often hard to read.
It is therefore important to use the dates as guides as they may be incorrect.
The same person may appear many times in the above list.
This is because a person can easily be listed on many different monuments.
For instance, a person could be listed on their own grave as well as on the gravestone monuments of their children and their spouse.
Occasionally names will be duplicated because the monument has in error been photographed and indexed twice.
Where a relationship is shown as unknown, this usually means that parts of the monument are illegible and relationship cannot be read.
Where no relationship is given this means that this is normally the first name on the monument.
All the relationships on any particular monument relate to this first named individual.
If there is no burial date then it is likely that they are not buried at this location.
Please note that the GPR records ALL names on monuments.

Thank for the prompt response to my request for information. I believe one of the Headstones is for my 6th great grandfather, one of the others my be his brother, but that I haven't been able to confirm. Thanks again for the photos.
Wetherby Kirk Deighton Ancestors - ATKINSON AND FARRER
I 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.
What a wonderful resource this is. It has enabled me to finally put in place the missing piece of my family tree puzzle. I have been particularly impressed with the quality of the image I requested and the speed with which my request was dealt with. Many thanks!
