Bio

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.ancestry.co.uk
www.deceasedonline.com [this has records of mainly UK burials, but not all areas at present]
www.familysearch.org
www.freebmd.org.uk
From 1969 England and Wales registrations of death usually state the date of birth, but this may not be accurate.

IMPORTANT REQUEST:
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!
