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

Thank you so much for taking a photo of my great uncle Fred's memorial. I'm a very keen genealogist but live in Australia so just couldn't get there to take a photo. I really appreciate your generosity.

Cheers

Fairly new to this site, is there a way of getting in contact with the person who submitted a particular photo at all?

Corporal David William Burgess
Hi Charlie

Thank you very much for the photo of Corporal David William Burgess gravestone. David or Billy as he was known was an uncle I never met. I have copies of his letters sent home to Australia during his service in the first world war.

David William Burgess's story is a sad one. Like many others he did not die during active service but from an illness contracted after the war. He died far away from his immediate family who were in Australia. His service record is listed on the Honour Board at the National War Memorial, Canberra, Australia.

It is interesting he is buried in Wiltshire an area his paternal grandfather and grandmother were both born in and lived in before moving to Wales. His Mother and Father then moved from Wales to Brisbane in Queensland. His letters included descriptions of the happy times he spent with his English and Welsh relations while on active service.

As a family member I am sure I speak for the rest of the family in saying we are very pleased to see his final resting place is so well looked after. If you could send us a bigger clearer photo of the gravestone this would be thankfully received.
