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.

Many thanks for such a wonderful resource. It's so helpful being able to look at gravestones and memorials when travelling isn't possible. This is a wonderful site.
I appreciate your help with the photo of my ancestors grave stone. It has been fascinating learning about my family history, and it is clear you have put a great deal of effort into this site. Thank you.
Headstone of John Thorpe
Thanks so much for the image. I believe the John Thorpe named on the bottom of this headstone was the husband of my 3rd cousin Elizabeth Cowham Dobson from Whitby, who was the youngest daughter of Isaac Dobson who was a fisherman/lifeboatman & lost his life in the Whitby Lifeboat Disaster of 1861. The image is for my own use in family history research. Thanks for providing this excellent resource!
This is a vital resource. Thanks for all the work you do. Gravestones are a decaying resource through deterioration or development. Unless we preserve them they will be lost forever
