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 South 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

Hi Charlie, I'm trying to find my Great Grandfather's grave. He died on 25 Aug 1943 and was buried at St John's. It was an unmarked grave and we can't a record of the plot details anywhere. Just wondering if you might be able to help.
Kind regards
Jo

Hi thank you for posting a photo of the grave of James and Eiley Gordon. I have their family photo album and have been researching to find out more information of them. I have uploaded their photo to the grave memorial page.

Thank- you for posting the picture of my great great uncle's gravestone. He is a family legend but I knew nothing about the army cyclists corps. Brave stuff for an 18 year old from
Fort William in the Highlands. Thank-you again

Hello Charlie,
Thank You for the work that you've done on these family members' memorials. If possible, I would like to request a transfer of all three?
Joseph and Frank are brothers, sons of David Bett and Sarah Anne Sanderson. David is a son of Robert Bett and Elizabeth Herringshaw. Robert is a son of Robert Bett and Lydia Robinson. This older Robert is a brother of my 5x great grandfather, Thomas Bett.

Thank You,
Ashley Bett
