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

Sarah Ann Poole
Hello Charlie, I am hoping there may be more information on this person in the church records for me to ascertain if she is the correct Sarah Annie I am looking for. Is it possible for me to check this.
Kind regards

This grave for Thomas Charlton was such a delight to see. Thank you so much. Charlie, I am wondering if it is possible to get a transcription of the information on the gravestone please or a better photograph so that I can see the writing on the stone. I believe that Thomas Charlton is my 5th great grandfather!

I look forward to hearing from you.
