Cemeteries can tell us much about our ancestors.
Information can be gleaned from the words carved on headstones, and we can learn a great deal concerning the family relationships from the placement of a grave within the cemetery.
Artwork and symbols found on the headstones can also provide more clues about this ancestor and their life, ideals, associations etc.
Most symbols engraved on a stone have a textbook meaning, although it is possible that the particular item you find engraved on the headstone is simply there because someone liked the look of it.
Many who choose grave motifs have no idea that the ornamentation they select has meaning.
This site has volunteers who go to cemeteries and photograph all the headstones. Many hours are spent photographing and renaming the files, and with a high cost to them personally for travel expenses, all work should be greatly appreciated by those who use this service. The majority of headstone photos are sent to you free of charge. Databases by Councils and large cemeteries have been incorporated by the author 'Peter Applebee' where available.
