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

Thanks

RE: West Midlands County
That's gotta be it, Charlie. Thanks so much. Here is the memorial which I am attempting to update. Mr. Woodall was a huge player in the black country glass trade and I am trying to contact his gg-grandson to verify that George is indeed buried in this churchyard. Wish me luck! And thanks again, Tom

West Midlands County
Hi Charlie! Regarding your list above of the counties in England, it appears that the subject county is not (yet) represented on that list. I realize that, according to this Wikipedia article, it became a county only in 1974 but, still, it seems like it should be represented. Or am I off base here? And do we need to look for a cemetery in the Staffordshire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire counties? In particular, I am trying to ascertain if this church has a "churchyard" and if that churchyard is already represented on Find A Grave. Any help you can give this ol' Yank from across the pond would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tom

Thank you so much for taking the time to post the photograph of my Uncle's final resting place. Although I never had a chance to meet him his sacrifice was an important message to all of us in our family.

Having a photo record allows us to see his headstone in England even though we are thousands of kilometers away in Canada.

He married my Aunt in 1944 shortly before being sent overseas to join the War effort. He died while participating in the Canadian Armies liberation of The Netherlands, the country of his Dad's birth.

Take care,
Lorne

RE: St Andrew's church Nether Wallop
Hi Charlie

Thanks for your message. I thought it was possible to delete a picture but that only the person who had posted it could do so. I've got a much bigger problem with someone else who posted some stuff and whose contact details no longer work (I suspect he may have died) - much harder to get his stuff deleted!

best regards

Anthony
