Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What are the different lists on a cemetery page?

Each cemetery or churchyard within the GPR has two different listing options.

The first option is in "monument" order. This option will list each monument in the alphabetic name order of the first name on the monument. For each grave all the names mention on the monument will be listed. This option displays all the names on the monument even if they do not have the same surname. This list is normally shorter than the name order list.

The second option is in "name" order. This option lists all the names mentioned on grave monuments in alphabetic surname order. This list is useful to find those who are listed in a grave who are displayed in the alphabetic surname order of the first name mentioned on the monument. For instance, this list will show a daughter under her married name. This list is always longer than the monument order list.
