Bio and Links
Trying to add as many pictures/details as I can, plus a bit of background information where I can find it to show where I have obtained maiden names and dates of birth from. (I realise this isn't a family history facts site, but I do like to show where I have obtained information from to prove that I've transcribed the grave correctly!) I only add details of a grave when I have seen/verified it myself. I don't just transcribe the details from photographs - I do actually transcribe the grave whilst I am there next to it, to make sure I get it as accurate as possible. Please let me know if you want to know where I obtained something from or you think something is incorrect so that I can put it right, but please be aware that some grave inscriptions were not always correct and can show incorrect spellings or dates.

If I have only added the basics (i.e. no photo or inscription), this is usually because I am still adding details, and I will finish them off as soon as I can. Feel free to contact me if you need the details for a particular gravestone that hasn't been completed yet and I will make that one a priority.

I'm based in SE Essex, England though have connections with Lancashire and Northumberland.

RE: Emily Rebecca Lycett
Thank You Janet. I added the original burial locations for all of the Lycetts from the cemetery records but from what I've been reading about the bombing during WWII and the 1860 remodeling the headstones that remain may not even be in the original locations. I also don't have a reference point that the measurements started from. If I can find a copy of the Bunhill Fields map drawn in the 1860s during a headstone transcription project I'll be able to see who had headstones and where they were.

Thanks Again,

Thank you for the information and the photos. I was just working on this line today. Do you mind if I use your photos in my tree on Ancestry? Did you happen to find any of the other Lycetts in the same cemetery while you were there? All of the records I've found just give the date of burial so without the actual death dates I've just been subtracting 1 day from the burial date.

Thanks Again

RE: St Andrew's, Newcastle
HI again Janet

Yes it is St Andrews' (COE) I put the photos on but it is not 'my' cemetery. When I put them on I did query which of the churches, hence I think I sent in the address and post code of the photos I had.

So you are quite right the GPS is totally out.

St. Andrew's Catholic Church
9 Worswick Street
Newcastle upon Tyne

is the other church but that does not fit the GPS either. Please do send the correct GPS to the editors.

I have family in Whickham so had to visit Newcastle once and went round the churches. Now that I have discovered find a grave I have tried to use the photos for public benefit hence here they are. It is easier to determine correct location if you see the right image.

When you have added your grave I will check them out who knows.... I have Golightly , Collin, mostly in that area.

RE: St Andrew, Newcastle upon Tyne
Hi There not sure.... just checking which one, could you send me the link? I am not sure if it is one I started. I think there was a query at one point between two St Andrews churches, one COE and one RC. The photos if it is the one I am thinking of are of COE St Andrews.
Does that make sense?

But if you send me the link (copy and paste teh URL) I shoudl be able to confirm

St Wilfrids Standish
Hello Lancashire Lass

I was very interested to see you have been photographing grave markers at St Wilfrids in Standish. My four times great grandfather is buried there and I would be interested to see what is on his headstone if it can be located and if it is at all readable. If you are going back would you be able to take a picture of it? His name was Thomas Latham and he was buried October 18, 1812. Thanks for what you have been doing.

Mark Bell
Beadnell Allan's
Hello Lancashire Lass!

Mark Bell here in Goodlettsville Tennessee USA. I see you have added John Green Allan in Beadnell. He is a distant cousin to me so I am interested in the Allan's, Green's, Jobson's and Robson's buried in Beadnell. They were from North Sunderland. Some are buried in St. Paul's Churchyard in North Sunderland.

Should I add any people I have in Beadnell, or shall I wait for you to load them? Either way is OK for me.

Thanks for handling Beadnell. Any other North Northumberland burial grounds you are planning on covering?? I have daily scattered all over. Family names Bell, James, Jobson, Robson, Allan, Smith, Common, Cumine, Johnson, Swann, Nicholson...all those fairly common surnames.

Thanks again.
