If you are interested in ordering a number of different images from different graves monuments, it may help if you list in grave order so that everyone mentioned on the same monument are listed together.
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.

William Richard Brookes, memorial inside the church
Thanks for this site, it solved the mystery death date and burial of Eleanor Brookes! I wonder if there are any photographs of memorials inside the church as I have seen a list of names which contains both Eleanor and her father William Richard Brookes on that list. It was posted noting it as the index to the Mural, Monuments & Memorials inside the Church. I also wonder if WR's gravesite is somewhere in the St Nicholas churchyard? I do not see it listed.
thanks so much for the photo of Private George Brookes's gravestone, this is the completion of another missing link in my dad's family tree. What a wonderful resource of information you have.
I will keep checking through to see if I can find anymore of my dad's relatives.
Thanks so much again.
