Gravestone Photographs

The site at www.gravestonephotos.com mentioned in the article Top 50 British Sites for British and Irish Research in Discovering Family History magazine was news to me. It has free transcriptions of monumental inscriptions in 22 English counties, especially strong for Norfolk and Suffolk. The small Norfolk churchyard where my grandfather is buried, it was in Suffolk at the time but they move the county boundary in 1974, is included. Unfortunately he and my step-grandmother were missed.

A very few graveyards in Scotland, Ireland and Wales are included, and in the US, Canada (Nova Scotta (sic)), Australia and Cyprus.
