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.|

|valerie glass||RE: Sibella Atkinson|
Thanks for your prompt reply! Sibella does state birthplace as Edinburgh in census. I was just curious in case you could verify it from a different source. She is the only one of her siblings to be born there, rest in Newcastle. She ran a lodging house in N/c. Her parents were innkeepers.
|valerie glass||Sibella Atkinson|
This is an ancestor of a friend whose family history I am researching. In your notes with photo you say she was born in Edinburgh. This is quite true but I am wondering how you know this as it is not stated on gravestone. Are you connected to Sibella,s family?
That should of course read "preserving", not reserving lol
You are doing a brilliant job, reserving people's homage to their forbears, keep up the good work, and thank you
I will delete my memorial but the address of the cemetery is incorrect. It is definitly in Borrowdale rather than Stonethwaite.
|Margaret Larkin||Thank you!|
I was surprised and delighted to find the memorial photo dedicated to my great-grandfather, Joseph Ernest Marwood, - thank you so much for taking it and adding it here.
Thank you so much for your work.

I just wanted to say Thank you for taking time to visit, take the photos and then put them on to this site. I really do appreciate the time and effort involved. I dont care if the photos are upside down, back to front or on there sides..........some people are just so finicky and unappreciative
|linda venable||Grasmere photos|
I always appreciate information and photos added to my memorials. However, I find your photos are excellent, but sideways. Could you please correct them?

Thank you so much for the photo of my 3rd g-grandparents grave. I am in Australia and I would NEVER be able to see it in person. You do a fantastic job. Thank you again.
