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.

Overton family links
I have been able to trace my father's side back a few generations. He was James Alan Overton, and his father was James Leonard Overton born 1880 in Grimsbury, Warkworth; and his father was James Haddon Overton born 1855 in Gayton, Norfolk; but his father was only James Overton, born about 1831 in Elsing, Norfolk - I THINK. He might be James Yaxley Overton, but he definitely married Martha Blogg. His father in turn may be another James Yaxley Overton. I have come across hints of this.
I am striving to be sure of this last one and find the connections further back. My father told me we are descended from Robert Overton (1609-1679), one of Cromwell's Generals, but I'd love to be able to make the link (or not).
My mother's side traces back to a John (Johannes) Johans (Dutch) who was born 9 April 1800, presumably in the Netherlands (maybe India), and died 15 Aug 1854 in India. I'd love to find any more details of his forebears!!
Any help is enormously appreciated.
