The son of a Greek father and English mother, I live in North East England.
Now retired and researching my family tree, I found Find A Grave useful in my task.
I was saddened to discover that whereas many North East war graves are recorded on this site, very few memorial pages include photographs of headstones, and I am attempting to rectify this.
I am in the process of visiting cemeteries in my locality [within a 60-100 mile radius of Darlington, County Durham] and adding photographs of headstones to existing memorial pages as well as adding previously unrecorded memorials and cemeteries. At the same time, I am adding any civilian headstones that catch my eye, especially if they also commemorate relatives that died overseas in the service of their country.
For memorials that I have added to FAG unless I have personal knowledge of the deceased, any details not shown on the headstone and not provided by other FAG contributors, are obtained usually from the following websites:
www.deceasedonline.com [this has records of mainly UK burials, but not all areas at present]
From 1969 England and Wales registrations of death usually state the date of birth, but this may not be accurate.
Unless the countries of birth and death differ, please do not suggest England (without at least the present county or at the time of birth/death) for my memorials in English burial grounds.
England is much larger than some US Persons might think!
