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 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.

I just wish to say thank you very much for photo that you send it is so nice to find that some one is willing to help. Thank you very much. Barry.
YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB
THANK YOU FOR THE PHOTO IT ALSO LET ME FIND OUT WHERE THEY HAD BEEN LIVING THANKS AGAIN
Many thanks for a wonderful website, which provided a number of photographs of Samuel & Ann Rebecca Lewis' headstone in a cemetery in a State different to that in which I live and which I could not visit. Thank you Charles.
Thanks for the photo. I am researching Edward and Sarah Lewis, who were both convicts in Tasmania in 1840s-1850s. They actually had a child in Launceston in 1857, but the family subsequently went to NSW. In other family trees involving Edward Lewis I have seen confusion between families. The photo was helpful so I can map out what is my family and what is not.

Thanks for the opportunity to add a number of details about LEWIS family members. I hope my comments can help other researchers.
Thank you for photo of gravesite. Discovered this site while researching family history. Hoping this gravesite is of who I was looking for. Would be interested in emailing anyone else with Lewis surname. Regards Tanya.

A big thank you for this service. I knew that 2 of the sons of my great grandfather had been killed in the Great War, but didn't know they had been commemorated on his grave as well as in the Military Cemetaries.
Many thanks for the photograph which you sent. I am very impressed by your web site which is a wonderful idea. Thank you very much.
Sincere Thank You
Thank you so much for sending me the photo I requested. I have been burned before and appreciate someone giving their service to provide these photos. (actully taking time out of their personal day to help someone else.)
Many thanks again, Charles. Other normally excellent sites failed in this case, but your site gave me essential information on a member of my family. Only the association of names on the tombstone gave me the identification I needed.
Many thanks for this service which has added details to my family tree which I had not found elsewhere.
