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 South 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

Ann (Turner) Newbold
I misspelt Ann's maiden name incorrectly, it should be Turner, not Tuner.

Thank you so much for posting the pic of my Grandfathers (Leslie John Gascoigne) headstone. This has meant a lot to my elderly mother (the Sheila Brookes mentioned on the stone) who is no longer able to travel to see it.

RE: everything
So if the flower vase has a name on it, does it mean that person is also buiried there? Or is it just the name of the individual who is paying respects?
Yes, Iunderstand it is sad when the dead have no visitors. We suffer two deaths, our natural death and the death when no one remembers our name.

What an amazing task you have undertaken!!! Being in the USA I totally appreciate the work you've done. I'm seeing small pots with holed lids around grave markers. Whay are those? Some have names on them.

St Andrews Burton on Stather
Hi Charlie

You have already photographed my great Aunt Enid Burgess in Burton on Stather churchyard, I wonder if you would be kind enough to find her parents, Fanny Enid and John William Morris. Fanny was buried 1951 and John in 1956. According to a letter my Mother has, there is a hydrangea bush near the unmarked grave, which is to the immediate west of the main footpath through the churchyard and is near the northern boundary.
Not sure what you will find if it is unmarked?
many thanks
Fiona (Perth Western Australia)

Thank you for the transfers. I'll take good care of them. Thank you very much for creating these memorials otherwise I would not have known where they were buried.
