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: 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

Hi Charlie,

Looking at this photo my G Uncle Frank's gravestone is sitting on his sister Eleanor Clark's stone. I have added her entry but not copied across the photo as you own the copyright.
Are you able to do this?

In this graveyard are three siblings: Wilfred Clark, Frank Miles Clark and Eleanor Clark. They are the children of Frederick Haines Clark and Eleanor Mary* Clark.

* I have amended my G Grandmother's name as it incorrectly shows Margaret, this is currently being submitted so may not show up yet :)

Many thanks for the work you have done.

Lizzie Dean
Hello Charlie,
Would you mind terribly much photographing the grave of Lizzie Dean who is buried at St. Bartholomew's Church and creating a Find A Grave memorial for her. I would be most appreciative. Her gravestone reads simply: Lizzie Dean 5th of November 1835. She killed herself at The Sun Inn, Chipping. I think her grave is located in Lancashire. You are probably already familiar with Lizzie, but if not you can google The Sun Inn Chipping.

George and Ann Leathley
Charlie, thanks very much for listing my great great grandparents George and Ann Leathley's grave on find a grave. I was wondering if it would be possible for you to visit this marker again and get more details? The photos are very high quality, but are still hard to read in the picture. It also looks like it is split in 2. I think another ancestor may be listed in the top half. I know its asking a lot, but could you please translate everything on the stones and send the translation to Thanks again for adding another valuable piece to my family history! Keep up the good work!

Harper & Walker
Thanks, Charlie. I don't know anything now so even if you don't find anything I won't be surprised. Finding you was serendipitous! I couldn't let the opportunity pass.

Harper and Walker families
I am mostly looking for direction. I am in the U.S. but my ancestors came from Yorkshire East Riding.

I don't know if there is a burial for any of them or how difficult it would be to find them with the little information I have. Perhaps you will run across someone from my family, perhaps you know where and how I should proceed. I am not obsessed with finding them; I would like to find them.

This is what I know:
William Harper married first Jane Bland who died in 1765. They had William Harper b.1764 d. 1842 who married Margaret unknown.

William's second wife was Barbara Holmes b.1742. Her father was John Holmes. She married 2nd Thomas Colbert but I don't have any dates for him.

William Sr. and Barbara had Elizabeth Harper b.1772 d.1834 who married James Walker the elder b. abt 1775 son of Thomas Walker. They had several children: James the younger, William, John b.1795 married Margaret Richardson, they had George 1923 went to America soon after, George b. abt 1795 also went to America, Mary Ann abt 1798-1883 (m. Charles Beilby/Bielby 1793-1869 stayed in Collingworth and Holme Upon Spalding Moor), Anna abt 1799-1883 (m. William Myers stayed in East Cottingwith & Yorkshire East Riding). I don't know if these dates are exact and the spelling for Collingworth and Cottingwith puzzles me. Did I type it wrong the first time I recorded it? Or did I misread the double l's and double t's?

Re: Canadian soldiers in Bulford Cemetery, Wiltshire
I just want to thank you for so kindly allowing me to add additional military service information to the biographies of several Canadian soldiers who were laid to rest in 1914 in the Bulford Church Cemetery.
