I'm sorry but I don't understand how to I'm sorry but I don't understand how to upload the thumbnail image of a grave to Ancestry. I have saved the thumbnail image to my desktop and then loaded it to Ancestry but the resulting image is illegible. I have seen the link you provide to transfer the high quality image to Ancestry but I don't know how to use this link. There is no facility on Ancestry to paste a link into a record. I am really thrilled to see the graves I was looking for but frustrated that I can't get them onto my family tree! Thank you for the massive amount of work you obviously put into this service.

TURNERLoaninghill Cemetery Uphall ~ Photograph Wanted PleaseHello A few years ago a wonderful volunteer helped with my request in taking some photos of my mum's final resting place in Loaninghill Cemetery in Uphall West Lothian. I was so grateful as i now live in New Zealand.Sadly last year i lost my brother who has been laid to rest beside our mum. I organised a lovely slate memorial for him and it was placed at the gravesite on the day of the funeral. I have no family members in Scotland who can help me get a photo showing my brother's memorial ~ i am so far away and would be very grateful if someone could perhaps help with my request. Many Thanks Alana

MERCIECASERVICE QUALITYWhat a briliant service this is; thank you! I intend to continue tracing my own ancestry in Ireland, and will let you have any memorial photos that I take, together with any I take at Richmond (Surrey)cemetery when my own family members are buried. I am trying to recreate a photograph of a boys' school soccer team from 1961 when we were all aged 11. I have found 9 of the 11 (all still living) and, following further research thanks to your picture of his sister's memorial, know that a 10th, her brother John, is also alive, but I have no direct contact details for him. Did I read from your information that you had such detail of those who had requested a photo? If so, that might very well lead to down another path to discovery. Best regards. Mike

WARDBurial Grounds in the Tadcaster areaPlease would you be able to advise me? I am trying to find the graves of my WARD ancestors who died in the 1800's, and lived in Tadcaster and from the 1880's in Stutton. Several children were baptised Methodist, and then 'Primitive Methodist'. Would they be buried in the Church of England churchyard, or is there a seperate Methodist burial ground in the area? I am particularly interested in William Ward who died in Stutton in 1890. Any advise you can give me would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.

PARSONSParsons Family including Bedell and Fifoot relationsTheir message: Dr James St John Parsons is my paternal to maternal great grandfather. The others are his family and therefore great Aunt's / cousins etc to me. I am undertaking research into the Florance and Parsons family. I would also therefore very much appreciate copies of the memorials for: 1] John Benjamin Bedell 1971 (not a cousin to Dr Parsons but a grandson. Both a cousin and husband to Alice Hazel Bedell. 2] Alice Hazel Gage Bedell 1984 (not a cousin to Dr Parsons but a grand daughter. Both a cousin and wife to Benjamin Bedell. 3] Gertrude Gage Parsons 1961 4] Alice McLearn Fifoot 1940 5] Edith Maude Bedell 1952 6] Elizabeth Parsons 1908 (?)(I think this person is meant to be James Parsons (jnr) wife who died in Celyon. Her name in a 'Will' is Margaret but may of course be known as Elizabeth. She didn't die in Celyon. 7] James Parsons 1908 8]Elizabeth Gage Parsons 1920 If I may gently point out I have corrected the relationships in brackets. Of course if your information is correct according to the memorials this raises important questions. Very many thanks indeed in anticipation for your assistance. Your work is a wonderful resource for researchers. thank you. James (Jim Florance)

CAMPNaomi Louise Camp, BurialI'm trying to locate the grave of my cousin, Naomi Louise Camp. She was born prematurely 12 Sep 1960 in the Royal Air Force Sculthorpe base hospital, weighing only 1 lb 8 ozs. baby Naomi only lived for 2 hrs. Per my late Aunt, her mother, she was buried in the church cemetery on the Lord Townshend Estate, close to Raynham and not too far from Fakenham, England. Per index records, she was born and died in District: Fakenham, County: Norfolk. I cannot find an estate by this name but I am finding the Raynham Estate and Raynham Hall. I've also found that the Church of St Mary is on the estate so am wondering if the church cemetery may be where baby Naomi was buried. Can you help me locate her burial? If possible, I would love to have a picture of her grave and headstone. Many thanks for any help you can provide.

PRIESTLEYFABULOUS WEBSITEThank you, thank you, thank you. When you live in Oz it is just great to locate a picture of the headstone of some of my late mother's distant relatives whom she knew virtually zilch about. I am trying to find descendants of Ferdinand and Alice (nee Denton) Priestley. Alice was a daughter of Joseph Denton and Mary Walsh and my mother was a descendant of Joe's youngest brother Thomas Peter Denton who migrated to Australia in the 1880's. I know Ferdinand and Alice had four sons and a daughter and that the eldest son, James, wrote to my mother back in the 1960's. She kept one of his letters. Would very much like to make contact with descendants of Peter Denton and Mary Allen.

WHITECHESTERInformation on Whitechester surname linked to Scotland and LithuaniaI have found information about the Whitechester name in Scotland connected to the Scott clan and the name Buccleigh. In a Pennsylvania death record in 1935 for Anthony Whitechester, my grandfather, his father, Thomas Whitechester, is listed as an immigrant from Lithuania. Thomas and Agnes Whitechester's four children were born in Pennsylvania in the USA according to their marriage licenses. There is a reference in Wikipedia to some land in Lithuania owned by the Buccleighs that they lost when Russia took over Lithuania. Does anyone have any information about the Whitechester name in Scotland or Lithuania? I haven't been able to find information prior to 1920 on Ancestry and Google about that last name. Thank you.

According to the London Gazette he received a gong for services to the Civil Defence in (or around) 1945.
