GILBYMany thanks for providing the wonderful Many thanks for providing the wonderful information on this website. It really is a great resource. I am researching my great great grandfather Elisha Bradley, who came to and settled in South Australia in 1850 with his wife Sarah (nee Foster) and two children Edmund and William. Elisha's parents were William and Susannah (nee Snushall). I am currently trying to track down information about Elisha's siblings and forbears in and around Wisbech, Cambridgeshire UK. I believe that one brother, John Bradley married Elizabeth Gilby in the Parish of Wisbech St Mary. The names of Elizabeth's parents Joseph and Sarah and her sister Ann (who is buried there) are inscribed on the headstone (in the Wisbech General Cemetery), an image of which of have accessed on this site.

KEMPESurname spellingDear Charles and other fantastic people who have created and run this great resource. Just for accuracy, please can I mention that the surname of Lucy Maud Kemp has an e on the end of it - i.e. Kempe. Frederick Hawke Kempe is my maternal grandfather. Thank you all for your hard work and giving spirit to create this resource. .... more

KEMPEA Fantastic ResourceI am researching my family history and this wonderful GPR website is a fantastic resource. I never even knew I had a step-grandmother until a few weeks ago and here I am half way across the world in New Zealand able to look at her grave. Thank you SO much to everyone who contributes in so many ways to this resource. It has been quite emotional and means so much to me. Thank you, especially to Charles.

HALL / SHAKESPEARERemarkable ServiceThis is such a profound experience for me to be able to have such an elaborate website and dedicated caretaker of the site. I am researching my Hall family ancestors in the USA which go back to the early 1600s here in Yarmouth Massachusetts. Just recently I discovered a possible link to Doctor John Hall, husband of Susanna Shakespeare. Charle's help in finding the actual gravestone of Susanna was remarkable. It sent me the link instantly.

METCALFHelpful photosThis site was very helpful and it is gratifying to see the actual gravestone of my ancestor. Living in Canada, it is not viable for me to go to the graveyards in England to do this research. I truly appreciate the volunteers who have spent so much of their time making it easier of others to track the details of their ancestors' final resting place. Many thanks, Rosemary P

RITCHIEThe Reverend David Ritchie 1762 to 1844 Being able to view the Gravestone of the Reverend Ritchie will no doubt help no end in a linked search. I am also very impressed at the speed in which my request has been processed. There is so much more to looking at an old or ancient monumental description. I have in the past found it to be a kind of trigger and on one occasion at least when I found that there was no marker at all in a cemetery the unexpected happened. The ancestor at that time wasn't even one of mine, just someone that I had been asked to help find in Australia by someone else in England. Within the week that ancestor's grand-daughter walked into our office and in only a few moments I not only learned who she was but every vital detail about her grand-father. Two months later the grand-daughter was able to call on and see her long lost cousin in Yorkshire. Never give up, Malcolm Hutton

A Great ResourceWhat a great resource. As the sole administrator of a free-to-use website myself I know just how much work can be required to keep the site up to date and to respond to queries in a timely manner.

Thank you!Thank you so much for your extremely fast response to my request. Living in the US it was not practical to visit England to get a photo of the grave and it means a lot to have it.

CHEESEMANSuperb siteWhat a brilliant site. It is so good to be able to see gravestones of our ancesters that are not within our own area. Special thanks to everyone concerned with this site. The work that is put into it and all for free is excellent. Thank you so much for all your hard work

HARPERWick HarpersThank you so much for sending the photo so promptly, it is a great help to getting the information I need in researching the Harpers in Wick.

O'DONNELL Thank you!Thank you so much for providing this service. The photo of Michael and Ellen O'Donnell's headstone at St Declan's parish, Ardmore was a huge find for me. I have a photo of family standing next to it in the early 1900's, but there was no info regarding location. Puzzle solved! Thank you again

TOWNCaptain Charles Aubrey Town MCMy Royal British Legion's Poppy Shop's Passchendaele 100 Poppy Lapel Pin is dedicated to Captain Charles Aubrey Town MC who was killed in action. The photograph of his memorial has proved invaluable in providing information to assist my research into him and his family in honour of his sacrifice. Thank you for providing this amazing resource.
