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 (C in this case) of the surname you are interested in.

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.

Having used this service previously I thinks it's great especially when one lives so far away from the actual area. Would highly recommend this & keep up the good work. Invaluable
Very useful for confirming life details
Thank you very much for the prompt forwarding of the requested image. I am very impressed!
I do have a number of photos of graves in my area in Australia and hopefully will find time over the Christmas break to upload them to this site as it is an invaluable resource.

Hi Charles Thank you for the 2Cole images you sent as usual they were brill. Just got back after a short break and realised I had not sent you a message sorry about that. Regards David
As I live many miles away from my descendants I find this website of an invaluable resource. It is also an added bonus that in this day and age you can still get something for nothing!
Thanks again for this service and long may it continue.

Thanks for your help with following up on family members. This has been a great help especially when living 'down under'.
What you are offering is absolutely brilliant and may you long keep it up.
since you have changed the way in which you now have to follow a link to download the picture of a grave i am having difficulty in doing so after following the link as it seems to take me nowhere
Thank you for your kindness in sending me the photograph of Mary Cole's gravestone. I think this is an immensely valuable project that you are undertaking, for which all of us interested in local social and family history should be very grateful.
