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

Editing Info
I was adding info to a grave you photographed and am unable to put his place of birth (Garthorpe, Lincolnshire) because it is not on the list. What do I do?

Hi Charlie

I am interested in the photo you took of the grave of William Reuben (D:1895) and Elizabeth Clarke (D;1924) at Aldershot Military Cemetery.

Do you have a note as to which area of the cemetery the grave was located as I hope to go there on friday (6th May).

many thanks

John Pead

RE: St Botolph, Knottingley
Thank you for your response. Would it be possible to put down when you enter in on the website, that it is a burial record not a gravestone that the information has come from? And that the gravestone was not visible?

Solomon Waterhouse
Thank you so much for the photograph of this memorial. Solomon and Mary are my Great, Great, great grandparents. Their son Solomon was the father of my Great Grandfather Herbert Maudson Waterhouse - the Maudson comes from Mary's maiden name.

Thank you also for the various Axe family memorials in Doncaster. I believe these are probably mostly nieces and nephews of Alice Axe - wife of Solomon Jr.

Charlie,

Thank you for this wonderful confirmation and offer to help me continue my research. I wish I had responded sooner to your response to my initial inquiry. I wish I knew where the time has gone.

Best wishes,
Joanna

I have edited birthdate based on photo of headstone which gives age at death of 43 which would make him born 1841. Was hoping it was one of my 2x grandfathers
Thanks for all your contributions to the site. I am planning on being a contributor of names in cemeteries here in Canada
