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.
All comment /feedback /help requests within the Gravestone Photographic Resource for the name MASON
Many thanks for your prompt and efficient response. Yours is a great initiative and I will certainly search your website in the hope of finding more relevant photos. Strange but seeing the headstone of one's ancestors (john Mason & Mary Ann Hildon) brings them alive, certainly if there is no family photo of them available.
Once again thank you so much.
Thank you very much. Strange to see the grave of two people I never met.
Very grateful to the volunteers who take these photographs - hope to find time to take them myself one day.
family history research
Many thanks for what is a great asset to anyone researching family history. Easy to use and a very quick response.
Just wish to thank you and the kind researcher who made this photograph available. Living in Australia it's great that there is another way of viewing graves. Did visit the UK last year and have a few graves I can share if you let me know when your upload page is working. Thanks again Caroline
Many thanks for excellent service
Thank you very much for the speedy response - less than one minute after submitting my request the image was there for me to view!
Thank you to the gravestone inscriptions volunteers - I have looked for Mason men from South Queensferry & noticed the age of Robert in the 1851 census was not inline with your record. His birth year there was recorded as 1796 & Helen was 1800. He does look to be too young for Helen with your date and I guess the stone was worn or weathered ?
David Mason Gravestone in USA
Many,many thanks for the photograph. It is so much appreciated and may I add what a helpful job you are doing. The family is here in Scotland and some emigrated in the late 1880's to Australia. Once again many thanks and you sent it so quickly.
MASON - WILLIAM LINLEY
My Father is a Canadian Merchant Navy Vetern of WW2. Somehow we ended up in our possesion a Mercantile Marine Medal - awarded to those who served at sea for at least six months, and on at least one voyage through a danger zone from WW1 era issued to William Linley Mason.
Now I know the final resting place of another Hero.
fantastic. filled in some blanks
this was fantastic, not just getting the headstone of one of my ancestors but also the information that was on it, if only i could be so lucky with all my ancestors
A superb and helpful service with an immediate response to my request. Many thanks.
