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.

Thank You for your assistance with my request for info on John Ward, Forth Railway Bridge
Many thanks for your prompt and efficient service, it is such a help to family tree researchers such as myself. When time allows, I will undertake to take some photos of headstones in my local churchyard as means of help.
Burial Grounds in the Tadcaster area
Please would you be able to advise me? I am trying to find the graves of my WARD ancestors who died in the 1800's, and lived in Tadcaster and from the 1880's in Stutton. Several children were baptised Methodist, and then 'Primitive Methodist'. Would they be buried in the Church of England churchyard, or is there a seperate Methodist burial ground in the area? I am particularly interested in William Ward who died in Stutton in 1890. Any advise you can give me would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.
Harriet Ward,Joseph Ward and John Ward. Many thanks for your prompt reply. The images of the Grave were great. Many thanks to all concerned.
Great resource. I lived in Leeds for 18 years and knew I had a great great uncle at Lawnswood but didn't know there were other ancesters there. I never visited Lawnswood so this has been a fantastic find. Many thanks.

Thank you for compiling and continuing to monitor this website. Sites like this are invaluable to those who cannot make personal visits.
Thanks for this image and all the images you hold on your site, they are especially useful for people who are not in the UK to continue their research.
Great site. A big help with family tree research . Thanks to all contributors & web-master.
A wonderful resource - thank you so much!
Thank you for responding so quickly and providing such high-quality images. My ancestors were not wealthy people, and there were very few photographs taken of them during their lifetime. It means a lot to me to be able to see these images, which help to illustrate my family history. I feel inspired to make the journey to visit these graves next summer.

Feedback on receipt of photos
Thank you so much for the photos - the next best thing to visiting ourselves.
What a wonderful idea for those of us who are not local. Unfortunately we discovered the link with Fewston only a couple of weeks after spending a few days in Yorkshire or we would have visited and photographed them for ourselves.
