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 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.

Very helpful for family tree search
Thank you for the photo of my ancestor's grave in Charlwood.
Excellent free speedy service.
Thank you, Charles Sale for the work you did. To find a little girl from our family who died in 1846 in Clutton, Somerset meant so much to me. Her family had moved to Wales before 1851 and I'm sure they often thought of her being there alone.
Thank you for the image
Thank you for this resource. I was very pleased to be able to view and save a good clear image of the gravestone.

Stanley Charles Cook
Thank you for providing an image of my parents' gravestone. It is lovely to be able to look at it on special occasions as I live 250 miles away.
Many thanks for the great job you do. It enables many of us to see the graves of relatives that we would otherwise be unable to do.
Thank you so much for providing the detailed photograph of Georges headstone, you are providing a very valued and appreciated
service for people such as myself researching family trees.
The Cook family of Pittenweem and St Andrews, Fife
Thank you for your swift response. All the work you and your volunteers undertake is fantastic and is very much appreciated. THANK YOU!
Transcription states Vanessa Louise Cook is the son of Phillip Steven Cook, this is totally wrong - Vanessa Louise Cook was the sister of Philip Stephen Cook.
Incorrect transcription of Christian names on gravestone
Transcription shows name as Phillip Steven Cook while actual name on headstone is Philip Stephen Cook.
