Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has been my hobby for 30 years or so and I feel it is really important to try and keep a photographic record of the wonderful headstones which are weathering away slowly, before they disappear completely. I feel quite strongly about the ones pre census records. Anyway, hope somebody finds them interesting, I do. PLEASE DO NOT RELY ON MY TRANSCRIPTIONS AS BEING COMPLETELY ACCURATE - I HAVE DONE MY BEST.

Margaret and George Bell
Dear Kilmarnock

This is the grave of my great, great grandmother and father and I am extremely grateful for the time and dedication you have made in photographing headstones unrelated to you but which mean such a lot in connecting descendants with their ancestors.
I would be very happy to add information I have collected over the years to this memorial.

Kind regards and thank you again.

When you send the info about them by can just do an edit under the bio and I will add what you send. I wish I was there photographing them as well....

RE: Margaret Bell Wears
Yes, thank you very much. If something happens to me and there is no-one to take over what will happen to the memorial?

Thank you very much

Thank you very much for the time you have taken in photographing and recording my great grandmother's grave, who was 25 when she died, leaving behind 4 little girls (William died not long after), one of whom is my grandmother (my mother's mother). I have been trying to locate her grave for several years. To see the image is wonderful.

Thank you again.

RE: Leeds
Thats very kind of you. Hopefully UK weather will improve and Cemetery is in good order. Hoping there is a headstone and it will give up a few clues. Always nice to see the final resting place of ancestors... Derek

RE: Leeds
Had a look at a map and find Wakefield is not as close to Leeds as i thought but do have a relative at Lawnswood, Leeds . He is Albert Varley Plot: Otley Road Section 1 Grave number: 105

Find A Grave Memorial# 147070363

If you ever revisit Lawnswood my wife would be thrilled to see a photo of the plot and hopefully a headstone but Leeds looks large so you may be on the other side of it and have no visit planned for a while but thought it worth a mention. My email is

Cheers... Derek

Guess you are a Leeds resident and have posted a request at Lawnswood and at Wakefield Sugar Lane and Crigglestone and with warmer weather on the way (we hope) and crosing my fingers they may get a response. Are you in that area over summer by any chance

RE: Utley Cemetery Keighley
Thank you for the reply and information provided. As for transferring Silverwood over to me, yes, right now I am interested in William Batty Silverwood, Sarah Throup Silverwood, and Thomas Silverwood (1836-1907). I need to research more the other Silverwoods before requesting more transfers. Thank you for your attention.

RE: Utley Cemetery Keighley
Thank you for responding to my inquiry about Utley Cemetery, and Silverwood-Binns.
I went back to read again my original posts and question about Sarah Jane Silverwood-Binns and James Binns.
I also updated Sarah Jane Silverwood's family connection to her parents, particularly William Batty Silverwood - which is on the page showing his gravestone photographed by you.
My additional information has Sarah Jane Silverwood having married James Binns in the Keighley parish on November 1, 1862. Her brother Thomas Silverwood was present.
Also, Sarah Jane Silverwood was born October 30, 1843, and baptized on December 25, 1843.
This additional information is provided since you noted about having searched for a marriage of a Peter Binns. Such a name is incorrect. James Binns married Sarah Jane Silverwood.
I am interested in knowing whether Utley Cemetery keeps records, since it is still a functioning cemetery; and whether it is associated with a religious parish or diocese.
Any information you can provide, given the above additional information that hopefully clarifies, would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
