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

|Margie Hinton||RE: John Hinton, Knight and MD|
I agree you and this is the reason for my wanting more information about this grave marker.
Sir John Hinton, M.D. died in St. Martin in the Fields and I don't find a death record for him there. It is more probable that a family member buried him in the Chilton Foliat Churchyard in Chilton Foliat, Wiltshire where he was born and where his parents are buried. They were Sir Thomas Hinton and Katherine Palmer.
I was sent the old map of the Chilton Foliat Churchyard and there are NOT any Hinton or Palmer names buried shown buried there even though the map is dated in the late 1500s.
It is likely that at LEAST these three Hinton family members are buried there as well as the infant daughter, Katherin Hinton who was born in 1598 and died the next year.
An old Bible with burials at Chilton Foliat has been donated to this Church, now known as St. Mary's Church, so when this scanning project is completed, perhaps we will have more definite information.
The son of Sir Thomas and Lady Mary Hinton, Thomas, married Lady Mary Margaret Popham (she lived 'down the road' in the Littlecot house (not little at all!)
Thanks again, Charles,

Found the Alfred 25531324 the son of William 137140338 & Sarah White 137140340. I have made the edits to Alfred memorial, but I don't know how long it will be before they show up (21 days of less) this is just for your info.
I just entered a transcription for a photo you had uploaded and didn't realize that I could add the extra names through that page since there are a few names on this same stone.
It was Amelia Binks in Northern Cemetery.
You may want to re-upload it so that it can be added to the memorials for the last few names on the stone.
Sorry, still learning the ropes on the new beta program !

|Iain MacFarlaine||William Rimmer Watkinson|
Last week, I was in Southport, where I saw the grave of the parents of William Rimmer Watkinson. As he is mentioned thereon, I have added a photograph of it to the memorial you made of his grave in Ambleside; but, as yours shows his resting place, it would be right for that to take pride of place, so may I suggest that you adjust the photo order, so that your picture is on top?
Also, can you please connect W.R.W. with his parents?
William Watkinson: 137241921
Mary Jane Watkinson: 137273886
I can't do either of these things myself, as you are the owner of the page.

Dear Charlie, thank - you so much for uploading the grave information for members of the Clarke family in Aldershot Military Cemetery ( my great, great grandparents and great aunt). This has been such a help in finding out more about our family history. I wonder would it be possible to transfer ownership for these graves to enable me to link them to other family members. Once again thank - you for discovering a missing piece of our family history. Helen
