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.
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
4226 Isle of Wight
4233 North Yorkshire
4240 South Yorkshire
4244 Tyne and Wear
4247 West Sussex
4248 West Yorkshire

Take Care....and Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Thank you so much for your kindness in transferring the memorials of my 3rd great-grandparents to me :) I sent a copy of the headstone photo to a family member in Utah via phone, to show my little 93 year old aunt (a lifelong genealogist) and she was so delighted.
Thank you for all your work for Find a Grave, and for your kindness in sharing your headstone photo's.

I was delighted to find my great uncle Lionel's headstone, which incorporates my great aunt Marian as well (1884-1960 and 1885-1965 respectively), at Over Wallop Cemetary. The last time I saw that, was when I attended my aunt's funeral. I look forward to hopefully finding more of the Peeke family headstones.... I know some are buried in Stoke Gabriel Cemetary.

Thankyou very much for posting the photos of Lucy and George Howard and their 2nd oldest child John Russell Howard and his wife Doris at Pontefract cemetery. Lucy and George were my great great grandparents, however I would like to go and see the grave myself, could you let me know whereabouts in the cemetery it is, thankyou very much.

Just wanted to say thank-you for posting the photo of this headstone. John James was my 3x great grand uncle and it was very moving to see his stone had been recorded.

Greetings from Dublin.
Please send me an email.
This morning, following a note from Geoffrey Gillon, I obtained a copy of his death certificate, which I can scan and send to you.
|Tony||Chiddingfold graves disturbed|
I recently visited the graveyard of St Maries church in Chiddingfold England. Surprised and greatly saddened to see that the church authorities have built a library meeting room IN the graveyard. To do this the builders must have removed many old graves. I asked the local council if they had done research and recoded the graves that they had to move, and they didnt think that a record had been made. I am personally affected by this because my family lived in Chiddingfold for hundreds of years, and I am trying to trace family graves.
Does anyone have any information on the English laws that would allow this grave disturbance to take place.?
Perhaps there are other people out there who have relatives graves in Chiddingfold.
