If you click on a particular church, parish or town name above then you will see details of all the grave monument images that are available for that particular location.
If there is a blank in the relationship column above then it means that this person is the first named individual on the grave monument.
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.

Once again thank you for your quick response to my request and the relevant enhanced image
Thank you very much for the email link to the gravestone image. I can confirm I have received this.
Very Good Resource
Thank you for providing this resource for researching family gravestones. I did find an ancestor, which was very rewarding. Others in the Bell family haven't been found yet, but I'll keep looking. Thank you again!
Thanks .St Michael's Alnwick gravestones
Thanks for the photo of graves in St.Michael's Alnwick of both Bell and Turnbull gravestones.
Excellent photographs of grave of William Bell. Don't yet know whether he is my wife's ancestor but he lived at the correct place so it is likely that he is. Many thanks.
Many thanks for providing the photo of William Bell and family.
Bell, Rowe, Healey, Sealey, Waddingham, Grainger, Shewan, Pollock, and related
I received an excellent photo of the headstone for Lucy Rowe nee Bell (8 Dec 1887 - 18 Mar 1995), thank you for that.
This line of Bells were around Daylesford in the late 1800s and 1900s. I have a fair amount of info on them, including ancestors & descendants (but very few photos) and am happy to share.
Sincere thank you fr photographs
Thank you Charles for providing such a valuable service to people around the globe. I never thought for a moment I would be able to get photos of Robert Bell (1797) and other Bell family members grave monuments at The Old Church of the Holy Cross Cemetery, Whorlton, Yorkshire, England... you truly have made me a very happy little family history researcher. Thanks a million from Western Australia. Happy 2017 to you Charles and your family.
MI for John Royal Bell and wives
Thank you very much for this photo which is useful confirmation of what I had told and/or been able to work out. If the information is of any use to you Joan nee Harper was John Royal Bell's first wife and Beatrice Mary nee Hargraves was his second wife. He was my great-uncle on my mother's side.
I came upon this site whilst doing a general search for information and found it to be very useful. During my search I uncovered further family information which I found particularly interesting. Great work!!
This is the first time I have seen anything relating to my grandfather. Thank you so much.
What a great site. I knew which graveyard John Bell and my grandmother Phyllis were buried but we thought the grave had been lost over time. Thanks for providing this info - much appreciated.
William Bell of Blanchland NBL
Ann Bell on gravestone is William's 2nd wife not his daughter-in-law and Thomas is their son. Robert is William and Hannah's son.
The information I requested was kindly sent within a couple of hours of my enquiry. I was very impressed. Many thanks
