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

William Hodge
Thanks for the picture of the grave William and Elizabeth Hodge at Sculcoates. They are my 4 x great grandparents. Glad to have found them.
The stone has writing on the other side, so it's frustrating not to be able to see it. Do you have another picture of that?
You are doing a great job, by the way.

John and Ann Esther Hatfield
Thank you for posting pictures of the Hatfield's headstone and the permission to post to my family tree. Ann Esther Hatfield was my grandfather's great aunt. She was born Ann Esther Wright in Bradford in 1807 where her father was a woolstapler. Ann married John Hatfield in Hunslet (Leeds) in 1846. He was a currier and Alderman in Doncaster. They did not have any children but two of her nephews (including my great great grandfather) benefited greatly from her estate. I will send you some additions via the Edit form.

Hewey and Buckye ancestors
Hi, Charlie.

This is the first time I've ever contacted anyone in England for information regarding my ancestors.
The came from Greater London and I would love to know where they're buried or anything about them. I do know that Susan Buckye Hewey, my GGrandmother, and Charles Hewey, my GGreat grandfather, came from Greater London. they migrated to the US about 1870, more or less, and lived in Brooklyn, NY. They had 10 children, some of which were born in Greater London, and some in the US. I know where they were buried in Brooklyn, NY, but I don't know much about the ones left in England. I believe that Susan had a brother, named Thomas, left in england. Her mother's name was Anne or Anna Niles.
Do you have any info on these ancestors of mine?

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 raleathley@gmail.com? Thanks again for adding another valuable piece to my family history! Keep up the good work!
