Bio and Links
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

Would you consider transferring management of Fanny Charlotte Ward in All Saints Churchyard Wistow to me as she is a distant relative which I have researched and have a lot more information that I can add to her monument

thanks

Thank You Charlie!
Hi Charlie :)

I fleshed out the memorial for my grand uncle, Percy George Harris # 86176763. Have a look if you get a chance. I placed a happy thanks to you at the bottom of his biography.

Re War Grave photos
Hi Charlie
Just wondering if I am able to use some of your photos that I have seen on "Find a Grave" to place on a website I am doing for Anzac 2015 here in Australia.
Cheers
Sandy
