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 a fast response to my request for a photo.
Thank you for sending the links to the photos I requested so quickly. It's a great resource that I had not seen before. Hopefully I can find some time to contribute some of the photos I have.
Thank you very much Charles
Thank you very much indeed Charles for sending me the image of my maternal Great great Grandparents Margaret and Robert Dowson's headstone and the surprise added image you sent of their youngest son William Dowson birth year 1885 and his wife Annie(nee Showler)birth year 1884,
I have also since discovered William and Annie's baby son William birth year 1921 was also burried there on 27 January 1922 he was age 10 months, he died 24 January. Annie was in the very early stages of pregnancy when her husband William died, I found this so sad that she lost both her loved ones in such a short time of each other.
Also Margaret Dowson's birth year was 1854 and Robert Dowson birth year was 1853 he died May 15th 1943 aged 90 years, and not 1947 as stated,
As I have side before this is a fantastic useful & very resourceful service that you have so kindly provided along with your team of volunteers it's a brilliant website.
It has been a great help to me as I live in France and am not able to visit the cemetery myself. I regularly visit your website now as I am still researching the many branches of my family and I am always hopeful of finding images of my families members monuments.
Thank you once again and my thanks for images you have already provided.
(Please accept my sincere apologies for getting you name wrong in a previous comment I put on your website)
With Kind Regards
