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

AUSTWICK FAMILY AT HOOK ROAD
Thanks Charlie for all your hard work. Ive been visiting Hook Road for 48 years as a child with my Mother to attend her Father, Grand father and Grand Mothers memorials. I have other family members buried there and we have searched over the years to find them. Thanks to your hard work and dedication we eventually found some long lost family in the same Cemetary. I visit Hook Road a minimum of five times a year with my mother who is now 72years to attend her fathers memorial. I would like to thank you for all your efforts and hard work. Please tell me how I may be able to assist in find a grave.

Many people feel uneasy in a cemetery but I feel most at ease. I feel uplifted that I have life and I embrace the life of those passed. Your doing a great Job Charlie. Take Care. Happy Easter 2015.

All Saints Harworth
Hi Charlie,

Thank you for your extensive contribution. I was just wondering whether the you have posted all the photos for All Saints - I was specifically looking for Gilberthorpe & Fisher.

Also wondering whether by chance last summer you took photos of St Mary and St Martin at Blyth - looking for Fisher.

Again my thanks for your extensive work!

Richard Robinson
Hello Charlie, I found today that my great, great grandfather Richard Robinson was buried in St Cuthberts, Barton, Yorkshire cemetery on 20 December 1891. I can't find a grave on this site. I note that it says that 100% of the graves have been photographed, is that right?
Thank you.

Burials
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

Cleggs
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.

Thanks
Christy
