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
4216 County Durham
4811 East Riding of Yorkshire
4217 East Sussex
4220 Greater London
5248 Greater Manchester
4226 Isle of Wight
4233 North Yorkshire
4240 South Yorkshire
4244 Tyne and Wear
5249 West Midlands
4247 West Sussex
4248 West Yorkshire

Was great to find you had added my wifes ancestor to the site and have linked them together so many thanks for that.
Know others are at St Martins Churchyard, Owston Ferry are Cornelius Barron 1805-1869, Benjamin Barron 1837-1908 and Sanderson Barron 1846-1855 and would be great to see their headstones
Have 9 at Gainsborough Cemetery but no section or plot numbers and it seems to be a large cemetery so may have an office who can give those details but its a common problem of having a good idea where they are buried without specific detail
Great work you have done - fantastic

You added a memorial for the Keil family. It got moved to one of mine in michigan from yours in West virginia. I got a messaged to James who took the picture of Keil stone. some how we need to delete yours for Charlotte as I have uploaded mine again. Yours is still linked to Albert his memorial is 131641256. Thanks Denny
Hi Charlie, I was so surprised to find a grave you documented St. Botolph church yard for Isaac Clegg son of Richard and Charlotte who died in 1841. My 2nd Great grandfather also Issac was born in 1841 to Richard and Charlotte, baptized in that church in March. I'm guessing they named the baby she was pregnant with after the child they lost. I know very litttle about my 2nd Great grandfather and hist parents. I have not been able to trace my Cleggs back any further then Richard, a Mariner who brought his family to Michigan around 1850's and became a farmer. The fact that Clegg seems to be a much more common name then I ever imagined hasn't helped much.
If you happen to be in that cemetery again I would be so gratful for a picture of any Clegg stones especially Isaac's.

I was so surprised to find this grave for Mairi Zoe Lathbury listed and I thank you for your work. It has enabled me to connect a completely missing link on the Macmillan/McLarty family.
I would like to respectfully ask for a transfer of this grave to me as I will be doing more genealogical work on the family and Mairi Zoe.
Mairi Zoe's mother is Margaret McLarty Macmillan Macmillan 141188271 and you can see my work under that link.
Again, thank you so very much for your work, without which I could not have moved forward in my work on this family, and for your consideration of transferring Mairi Zoe Mitchell-Macmillan Mason Gibbs Lathbury's virtual grave to me.
warmest, jaeren 47669788

|Mary Egan||Hodges Grave in Cheshire|
Dear Charlie: The man that gave me my first job when I was 14 years old was Terence Mark Hodges who emigrated from Cheshire, England. He was Director of Inter-library Loan At Harvard Medical School at the time. (1965) He died at 70 years old unexpectedly.(?2009) Although I have a PhD in Nursing, I am not good with the computer and the email Find a Grave has for me has crashed and disapeared!! maryoconnor884@gmail. Perhaps his parents were Hodge not Hodges. Before he gave me my job at Harvard, I baby sat for his only son Thomas Mark Hodges who now works at the US State Department in Washington DC. I am new to geneology research and don't want to offend anyone. My parents are long dead and were from Abbeyfaele, Co. Limerick, Ireland and Swinford, Co. Mayo Ireland, so I am sensetive to other peoples privacy. An email that does seem to work is cdr.oconnor@ gmail.com. My physical address is 1010 Sanford Road., Wells, ME 04090-6005 so you will know I am sincere. Photos of a cemetery at Cheshire is all I ask
Respectfully, Mary O'Connor Egan,RN,PhD, USNR (RN)
|Helen Railton Price||St Etheldreda's Church, West Halton, North Lincolnshire|
I can see that you have already visited this church and some of the photos are of my relatives' graves, the Kirk family, which is really helpful - thank you.
If you are ever in the area again I would really appreciate a photo of my Grandmother's sister's grave. Her name was Betsy Alice Kirk, daughter of Hannah Jane and Harry Kirk. She died in infancy in 1910 and is buried in St Etheldreda's Church yard. Before she died my Grandmother told me that her sister had been buried 'close to the wall' of the cemetery, if that helps.
|A Beattie||Mary Ann Cryle - 96352093|
Thanks very much for the link, sir.
To confirm - Mary Ann Cryle died 24th. February, 1928. Just the job.
|Simon Gallup||Browns in Colchester|
Thank you for photo 81249917 which shows Frank Edward Brown and Arthur James Brown who were both KIA during the Great War. Their names also appear on the Langham War Memorial and as I am researching the names this is the final proof!
|Maria Borrill||Flixborough OLD|
Is it possible for you to remove the photo's from this page?
This is old cemetery located a mile from Flixborough [see map] in some woods and not the 'modern' church, which doesn't appear to have a page yet.
