Bio and Links
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

John Hinton, knight and MD
Charlie:

Can you look at the grave marker you posted for:


UK and Ireland, Find A Grave Index, 1300s-Current about John Hinton
Name: John Hinton
Cemetery: St John the Evangelist Churchyard
Burial or Cremation Place: Sutton Veny, Wiltshire Unitary Authority, Wiltshire, England

I cannot read the faint carving.

I am searching for Sir John Hinton, MD, born in Chilton Foliat, Wiltshire and died in London 1682 - he is NOT buried in the St. Giles Cripplegate cemetery as shown on Find a grave.

Could this be my John Hinton?

Thank you so much,

Margie Hinton in California

Thank you
My grandfather passed in WWII and the photo you posted of his memorial is the first time I or any of my family has seen it. He passed shortly after my mother was born and she never knew him.

Being residents of the Canada and the US, we have never been able to make it over to England. And as my mother is getting on in years, she may not make it at all.

Your photo brought him just that much closer to us. Thank you very much.
