Please note that all ages and dates of birth 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.

Tremendous help in assisting me with family research. This is an excellent free facility, which I happened upon accidentally. Thank you so much for your efforts in assisting.

Thank you

This site is a very helpful resource and I am sure everyone who uses it is most grateful to the work you put in. Sadly a lot of the stones in our churchyard are very bad to read. Best wishes and keep up the good work. Andrea

Thanks

Thank you very much for your help in supplying links to two photos. As so often happens in family history, whilst I was able to confirm some theories, other avenues to explore opened up unexpectedly. Fascinating!

BEST/SUMNER

This is such an invaluable resource. I live in the US and so am unable to personally research my family tree and to visit family graves. Many thanks to all the volunteers who give freely of their time.

Prompt service

Thank you very much indeed for sending me the photo I had requested from your website. It has opened up some more channels of research to broaden out my own family history. My son-in-law was impressed with the site and will soon be sending you some photos of graves which he has already taken in connection with his family.
