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.

Accessing gravestone photos
This is the second time I have requested a photo of a family gravestone. They are great and the request response is almost instant and the quality of the pictures are very good.
I was sent my third great-grandfathers gravestone after an easy request. A brilliant resource and a fantastic help for genealogy.
Thank you so much for giving me access to the memorial inscription on the grave of Annie Isobella Harper. I do appreciate the work that you and all your volunteers are doing and wish I could help you all.
William and Ann Harper and sons William and George memorial plaque
Thank you for the excellent reproduction of the Harper family memorial inscription. I have known about the inscription for some time and have searched the graveyard on several occasions without success and assumed that it was a gravestone that was no longer legible or still standing until I found the photo on your site and realised it was actually inside the church and being able to get such a good clear image has saved me another trip to Norwich. William Harper the son was actually 32 when he died and not 52 as stated. Thank you again for an excellent service.
Thank you so much for sending the photo so promptly, it is a great help to getting the information I need in researching the Harpers in Wick.
Thank you very much for your speedy response to my request. You provide a wonderful service which is very much appreciated. JMP.

Trying to find out the parents of Ann Lovick
Absolutely brilliant information and service. Received photo straight away. Many thanks.
What a really useful website
So glad I found this really useful site. Allowed me to link family members together.
Not my Thomas Harper
Thank you. Very helpful. While Thomas Harper, father of Elizabeth, was not the Thomas I was looking for, thank you for putting up the photo of this memorial stone. Without it, I would not have been able to research what did not happened to my Thomas Harper. Mine was a Thomas, b in 1790 in Hunmanby. His parents had died by the time he was 9 and he seemed to have disappeared. I had suspected he had gone to live with a relative who may have lived in Rawdon. Not so apparently, but your site helped me immensely in eliminating clues as to what may have happened to the boy. Thank you. (I have added info about who it appears to me that the Thomas, Elizabeth, Charles & Isabella listed on the marker may have been)
Great to be able to find a photo of my husband's ancestors on your website. A really useful website for family history research. Thank you!
