About the BROWN names held within the GPR
This page contains a list of all the entries for the surname, maiden and family name BROWN that are held within the Gravestone Photographic Resource online database. It is quite likely that there are also entries available for alternative spellings of this name. It is very easy for you to check to see if there are any alternative spellings: you just need to look at the page that shows all the names listed under the starting letter (B in this case) of the surname you are interested in.
The BROWN name may also be found within either maiden or family names stored within the GPR.
If you click on a particular name or GPR reference number above you will see details of what information is held for that particular grave monument. If there is a high quality image available then you will be able to order a free copy of it.
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.

Thankyou - HARRISON AND DIXON AND BROWN
Thanks for this site, I am researching at a distance so feel lucky to have stumbled across it
Mainly researching Elizabeth Brown b June 1866 who married John Thomas Harrison
Huge time saver
I'm researching my branch of the Brown family in Lowestoft and surrounds - Seem to have been fish merchants in the mid 1800's.
My sincere thanks for making all this information available. It is very much appreciated.
Mary Ellen Brown
Thank you foe lovely clear photos
Many thanks for providing this invaluable service.
Thank you so much for the help in sizing the picture so nice to be able to view the gravestone especially when you live so far away and will probably never get back to England to see for my self . Thank you.
Thanks for a great service
Within hours of requesting an image, an email arrived from Charles Sale with the link to a high definition picture - far better service than most commercial sites. The image was clear and sharp. Sadly the tombstone was less so. Time had taken its toll and the lettering was virtually illegible. But that really is not the point. Far better to find out that the hoped for family information isn't available than to waste time hoping it is. Once again, thanks for an invaluable service.
The large Victoria Rd cemetery near Barnard Castle is not yet included in your db. Could you please add this to the projects list to be photographed?
Also there is a bug in the validation process, several correct answers were rejected as incorrect.
Thank you to the volunteers who provide this wonderful service.

Marion McGill Brown Robert Brown Isabella Arnott Brown
Thank you so much for allowing me to see the gravestone showing some details of my father's parents and sister, whom I never met. My late brother was named after my father, and now I see also after my grandfather. My father, Robert Brown, died in Bangour Hospital on 25th June 1993, aged 72. My late brother, also Robert, died peacefully at home in Renfrewshire in January 2011, aged 57.

Thank you very much for all your help in my long search for my friend David Brown. What a wonderful service you provide, and whilst the outcome of my search was not what I was hoping for, at least I can now put my mind at rest as my search is now finally over. Hoping to visit you soon one day David R.I.P my friend.
Photo greatly appreciated
Many thanks for the photo of the gravestone of Daisy Alice Brown. Living across the pond, the chances of visiting many cemeteries in the U.K. is pretty slim. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to have a photo of Daisy's gravestone.
Thank you for a terrific looking photo of Elsie & Hector Brown's tombstone at Patho.
Thank you for your prompt response

I belong to the Poppy Trail Trio who are doing a poppy trail in our cemetery chapel at Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside. We lost approx 300 men from the town in WW1 & are placing a poppy cross for each one on the specially made boards in the chapel. Also we are doing a document for each soldier. This is not always easy as so many records were burned. To get a photo of a gravestone from a churchyard so far away from us is brilliant & will add to our folders that the documents are kept in. Thank you so much for providing this. We are very grateful.
I have conducted Family tree research in different areas of the country for many, many years. Volunteers who look the records of burial sites and head stones play a very part in conservation both of the sites and records. It's also a help when a researcher has to travel a long way and no time is wasted. Having got the information strived for, in general people don't mind paying an amount in the box when visiting.
Benjamin and Ann Brown
Very many thanks for the photo you sent, only found your website a couple of days ago, I now have details about my great great grandparents. Thank you.
St John, Great Wenham Suffolk
I'm looking for the gravestone of Harry Brown believed to have died in Great Wenham in 1964. If anyone lives near this churchyard and could look I would be very grateful.

WILLIAM AND MARY ANN BROWN monument exists St. Giles and St. George's burial ground Ashtead
We are hoping there may be a photograph of the headstone of William Brown dec 5/11/1947 and his wife Mary Ann Brown dec 02/12/1950 available. We have a map confirming it is there and have been told there is an existing headstone however we live in Canada. I note they are not listed on the index though it has been done on your site. Thank you for any assistance.
Great quick service. This image has given me new information
Great quick service. This image has given me new information and something to add to my family history rather than just names and dates - thank you for the great resource.
