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.

Grave of Christopher & Mary BENSON nee GRAY
Truly a magnificent free to use website that I've just used for the first time!
The image I requested of the BENSON grave was great to see, especially being a better quality image than the thumbnail.
In case another person has a link to these people which appear in my family tree I mention the following comments -
‘Christopher BENSON married Mary GRAY 07 Dec 1807 St Peter Leeds YKS. Mary was bpt 24 Feb 1788 St Peter Leeds, daughter of Henry GRAY (1762-1835) & Ann SINGLETON (1763-1835/1841?). Mary is a sister to my maternal 4x great-grandfather Thomas GRAY (1807-1838).
Many many thanks
