Bio Photo Please feel free to take any photos that I attach and upload them to your family tree. You do not need to ask my permission or credit me for the photograph.

I live in the East Riding of Yorkshire in England and am willing to look for graves etc in the local area.

I am trying to make a full record of the cemeteries I live near and am using local history records to add in the details for headstones which I cannot read or are missing. I started this when tracing my own family tree and my aim is to help anyone tracing their family. I do not want to upset anyone, so if anyone wants me to remove or transfer memorials please let me know.

Tip (Copied from England Discussion Forum):
To do a search for cemetery or churchyard in a particular county go to cemetery search and begin with a full search for all in England. Find-A-Grave will say that there are too many records and that you should go back and refine the search so that it returns fewer results. Ignore this and in the address bar at the top of the screen, where the url reads:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=csr&CScn=&CScntry=5&CSst=0 replace the 0 at the end with one of the following codes. There may still be several pages of cemeteries in the list for the county, but it is easier to look through

Headstone Photograph T. Kane
Hi Charlie

Just a short note of thanks for the photograph you posted of my Grandfather In Pensioner Thomas Kane.

I wasn't able to attend his funeral, and having lived in South Africa for the past 30 years, it was a relief that someone was kind enough to record his resting place, so that I could find it.

Many Thanks

Hi Charlie,
I am planning on a trip to Wiltshire next week chasing some Ancestors. Two of the churches I plan on going St Marys Shrewton and St Peters Winterbournre Stoke, I see you have taken many photos here. Do you know if you took all graves there or just some.
Many thanks

Jill

Elizabeth Jefferson #112700395
Thank you for posting the picture of Elizabeth Jefferson's grave in St Columba Churchyard in Topcliffe. She is my GGG-grandmother and I was very pleased to find this posting. In looking at the picture you posted, there seems to be several lines at the bottom that are obscured by the grass, but appears to show a date of 1865. I would like to determine if perhaps her husband, James Jefferson, is also buried there. Would you be able to confirm what may be hidden at the bottom of this marker, possibly by taking another photo on a future visit to St Columba. Any help you could render would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You - Nancy H
