No problem George. I have other people wonder what I was talking about as well. When you get the names wrong, they look correct in the memorial and it is only when you look at the cemetery listing do you notice the name isn't showing up correctly.
Another one I see sometimes is people accidentally putting the last name in the middle name field, so on the memorial it looks correct "John Smith". But when you look at the listing it shows as
"-----, John Smith"
and they are listed at the beginning of the listing rather than with the other Smiths.
Thanks for your help,

Her surname is listed in the maiden name field which is used when a woman married and takes her husband's name. If she was not married or stayed with Seeton when she married, then Seeton should go in the last name field. The memorial looks like there is no last name and she will be listed incorrectly in the cemetery listing. Right now it she shows up with a last name of "-----".
It wasn't meant to be inappropriate. Instead I was just following the Find A Grave FAQ on naming convention.

Sorry, but that is not a memorial that I added or control

Hello - I have updated the Hartnolls' memorials. I photographed and documented all of West Street Cemetery, a project that took a few years to complete.
However, I would point out the rules governing the Find-a-Grave website, specifically:
"If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. You should never deliberately create a duplicate memorial." [FAQ #141]
"Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use." [FAQ #143]
