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 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.

Thank you for this service. For overseas residents this is a valuable service.
Thank you for Charles for providing an excellent web site. The work of yourself and your volunteers is much appreciated. I found the site easy to use and I am not that brilliant with technology. I shall certainly be using the site again as my family are all over the UK

I was looking for examples for a talk to my Family History Group on how to use your site, never imagining I would find something I didn't have. Thank you for this photo of Charles. Next time I am in Knaresborough from NZ I will visit him.

Thank you for the image of Elizabeth Hill (1833-1888), daughter of Alexander Hill (1785-1867). Great to see the inscription is still legible
Thank you so much for your prompt response to my request to view two gravestones. I'm doing some research for a young man who doesn't have a lot of info on his ancestors and this burial was a great find. Thanks again, your help is much appreciated
THANK YOU VERY MUCH
What a lovely photograph of the gravestone of my Aunt and Uncle - very many thanks. I am so impressed at the speedy reply and the ease of finding the photograph - I thought it would be beyond my capabilities.
Thanks you for the image of William CLARKE's headstone, Rylstone Cemetery.

It was good to find the grave of my father's aunt Mary Eleanor Mary Hill who died young. I will now return to Aylsham cemetery to have another look. Many thanks for your help!
Helemill, Ilfracombe. History research
I am researching into past millers at Hele Cornmill, Ilfracombe and this site has proved very useful. Thx
what a lovely surprise
Thankyou for all your great work taking all these photos and setting up such an efficient website
Many thanks to Charles and all the contributors to this very valuable site. I have been very happy to be able to confirm family research information on the Hills and Whartons of Whitby and area through one gravemarker and hope that other information may be found with further searches on the site. Best Wishes to all with your many projects and historical works. K
A fantastic resource for those who for whatever reason can't physically get to the cemetery where their ancestors are buried. Another example of how the internet coupled with volunteer efforts make family history so much more accessible. Great concept! Thanks again.
DAVID HILL & ELIZA HILL
Thank you, Charles for your help in finding and taking a photo of my family member's grave site of my great great grandfather and Grandmother. You were so quick and it was so easy to request. I would recommend this service to anyone who lives miles away. Ancestry.com should know about this. Thank you, so much.
