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

Joseph Markham
Thank you for making this site accessible through Ancestry. I have found that Joseph Markham also had both of his grand daughters buried with him. I will be looking for more graves from the Markham and Redmore families.

Francis Timney
Hello Charlie
Can I just take a moment to thank you on behalf of my entire family. Our great Uncle Francis Timney was a regular soldier when WW2 broke out and due to his experience he was asked to help to lead a group of young experienced Canadian soldiers during the D Day landings, sadly this is when we lost him. My Mother has many happy memories of Frankie coming home on leave bring presents for them all - he was the family rebel and not a little glamorous in their eyes because of it. I have 2 ceramic roses from the Tower of London and I intend to display them along with this picture in my garden - I open the garden once a year every year via the RHS - so lots of people will have the opportunity to remember our fallen
Once again our heartfelt thanks to you
Kindest
Cherie
