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: 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

Charlie - Thanks for posting tombstones for George William Norwood and (I think) his Mother, Miriam Norwood.

Do you know of this family? Trying to contact living persons.

Louisa Dyer
I am not sure but have been looking for a very long time. Louisa Dyer may have went by Josephine Louisa Dyer. Her maiden name Josephine Leane. She was married to William Dyer. She is in the All Saints cmetery. Whiteparish, Wiltshire Unitary Authority in Wiltshire England.

Would have any more information on her?

I appreciate you looking this up and any help you and give. She is my 3rd grandmother.

Thank-you so much!

Peggy (Dyer) Smith

searching East Riding findagrave
Finding you from a link from a link to the directions for finding specific cemeteries/areas, I am able to find cemeteries in the area my ancestors lived. No success yet but I have just begun. New avenues to search! Harper, Walker, Beilby, Richardson, Myers, and others. I'm trying to flesh out the history for my 5th great grandparents.

Find A Grave Memorial# 97007052

John Morris is my 14th GGrandfather on my mother's side. I wish I could make out exactly what is written on his headstone but it's not too clear. It also list several other family member's buried with him? Is there any way you could let me know what it says? Thank you. Hope to hear back from you.

Mary Blanshard of Elvington
Thanks for helping my find my great-grandmothers grave.

She was married to William Newton from 1865 until his death in 1874 and my grandfather was born out of this union.

Brookwood 1914-18 memorial
They have now restored nearly all of the names, so your panel photographs are secure. The names now appear within Brookwood Military Cemetery rather than under the stand-alone Brookwood 1914-1918 memorial where they were and where they should be. That, by its very nature, identifies the casualties as ‘burial unknown’-the reason why they deleted them from the Brookwood 1914-1918 memorial!

They have not, because they cannot of course, tell me why, following their logic, they allow the Brookwood 1939-1945 Memorial with its names, to remain. In my experience, they never admit to mistakes so they are unlikely to back-track now-not unless a number of people try to convince them to see common sense.

RE: Albert and Jean Cawkwell
Thanks for the transfers. I live in Canada so I am never sure where my English family is buried but if you ever run across more Cawkwell's or Rix's please keep me in mind.

All the best,
