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. My name is Pamela and I see that you have posted a photo of my Dads grave on this website. I was wondering if someone had asked you to look for the grave and if so who thast was ? I have been researching my Dads family tree for as long as I can remember and to say that it is complicated is an understatement. So I wondered if the person was a friend or family ? I noticed from the photo that you haven't got his date of birth so I can provide any additional info that you might think is useful. Best wishes Pam

RE: Brookwood cemetery
Charlie--
Thank you for what you do. Of course, please check that the ones you delete are actually duplicates. We don't want to inadvertently lose a Czech RAF memorial.

Thank you!
Just wishing to convey my profound appreciation for
the work your doing, and as a result, managed to locate a missing relative, whom almost had eluded all descendants.
His name Cryril Viney William SIBLEY (AB) b.27 Jul, 1896,Erith, Kent, England, who died 13 Jan 1934 aboard the "Resolution,Southern Harbour Malta..
Although only a second cousin x removed, there are many closer living descendants who would echo my sincere thanks to you for solving this enigma of his passing.
Thanks again.

I was sad to see that the gravestone of my grandfather's brother had been broken when laid flat. It must have been recently as I had seen it upright not that long ago. Fred belonged to an Army family, his father and brother (my granddad) were both long-serving. Fred died of meningitis, following a long spell of pleurisy whilst in hospital in Aldershot and was buried in the Military Cemetery.

There were no family in Aldershot area to care for the grave as the family were posted to many different places here and overseas.

I do hope the cemeteries keep records of the actual place of burial when they remove the headstones.

Charlie: I'm having a little trouble understanding the relationship between all the folks shown on this headstone. Hannah Snipes was 76 yrs old and died in 1866. I believe she was Hannah Fisher, b. Jun 1789, d. 1866, buried with her husband, John Snipe in St. James Church in Braithwell. If this is true, who are the Shepherds? Go easy on me, I'm a Yank.
