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 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.

A fantastic resource of quality images
Thank you so much for providing several images which have helped me piece together the Wilson branch of my family. Your work is much appreciated.
Thank you very much for the photo of James Wilson and family
Thank you very much for the photo of James Wilson and family. Teresa is my Husband's 3x Great Aunt and she was the second Wife of James. She and James didn't have children of their own, but she became Mum to James's children. This site is so helpful please keep up the great work you do
Thank you for sending the gravestone photo for John Henry Wilson, who died on board HMS Warspite off Corfu in 1938. I had an old picture of his grave which had a rather battered wooden cross on it circa 1970, but am glad to see that it now has a smart Commonwealth War Graves stone memorial instead. He was a very distant cousin.
This is a very useful site and must have taken a huge amount of time to prepare and maintain.
Thank you for this photograph
Thank you for this photograph
Wilson family in Wragby
Many thanks for this excellent website. Charles Wilson was my 5th great grandfather.
Just to say thank you for the lovely clear photograph of the headstone and that I'm really impressed with the ease of getting the larger version of said photograph, and it's free too.
I do appreciate this service especially having a reference number as well as a photo. Thank you
Thank you so much for access to this image, very much appreciated!
David Wilson 1829-1892
Thank you for the photograph of the Grave Stone of David Wilson and family. It was a great help for my Family Tree. I was looking for information about a child and the Grave Stone gave me the answer. Thank you to everyone who takes the photographs.
Thank you so much for granting my request, very much appreciated and has given me some useful information regarding John Anderson.
With kind regards
Isabella Wilson at Lowick
This is an excellent service especially now it is possible to view the enhanced image automatically. Sadly it is not the person I had hoped to find but many thanks for providing this useful resource.
Thank you so much for the images you offer. It makes all the difference to be able to visualise an inscription and so much better than a simple listing of death in a genealogy website. I've been looking for details on the Boyd Wilson family as they are my distant cousins for my family tree, and you've helped me fill in few blanks. And created more blanks - but hey, that's the fun of genealogy!
Another one I'd missed.
