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 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.
All comment /feedback /help requests within the Gravestone Photographic Resource for the name KEMP
Thank you for sending me the photo of my g-g-g-grandmother Maria Kemp's gravestone which I am pleased to confirm is the right one. One comment I would like to make is that the date on the stone is 1873, not 1878 - I have her death certificate to confirm this. The death certificate does have some conflicting information - it says she died on Nov 25, not Nov 16 as it says on the stone. However, the certificate also says her husband was William but this is wrong - the name Thomas on the stone is right. Perhaps as the certificate was filled in by her son-in-law with whom she had been living explains the error.
Anyway, thanks again for your help.
Thank you for the link to the pictures of the gravestones for Rachel and James Kemp and for Florence Bessie Heald (ne Kemp. I would not have been able to get these myself so great work by your volunteers.
Great free service especially useful when people don't live in the area where ancestors are buried.
I have found this website so helpful in trying to trace my Family tree, Having no where to really start on my mothers side. Keep up the good work.
Skinner Street Chapel, Poole, Dorset, England
Looking for photos for my ancestors in England, records show they were buried at Skinner Street Independent? I'm tried looking up skiner street but cant really get an real answer on where this place is, much less even photos of my families graves. I know my line of Kemps are supposedly buried all over Dorset,Poole. But right now I'm looking for just this one family
George Kemp 8 Feb 1756-Jun 1845 , he was a deacon of the skinner street church for over 60 years
his wife Sarah Kemp 19 Mar 1763-22 Nov 1813,
So I'd like to find these two and anyother Kemps buried at this Skinner Street Church
Thanks very much for the enlarged photo of headstone. I now know that this is not the David Kemp that I am looking for. thank-you anyway
I am delighted to be able to see the gravestones of my grandfather's family in England. He himself is buried in Ireland
