Graveyard Audit

As part of our recent Heritage Lottery funded project, it was decided that an audit of gravestones at the Church should be undertaken. This would give information to those unable to visit the Church in person or those researching their family burials.
Although I took many photographs of the gravestones I discovered a free online website called Find a Grave® (FG) . Better and earlier pictures are to be fond on the website. (See at the end of this for more information on accessing the website).
If you follow the link below.

This will take you to a list (database) of the burial records identified so far and gives information based on
Surname, Firstnames, Birth Date, Death Date, Age on Gravestone, ‘FG’ reference and details that I may have identified from other research.
I have done my best as an amateur genealogist to be accurate, but sometimes difficulties in reading old documants , photographs and the gravestones makes this hard and there may well be errors. Listings are alphabetical and also seachable. They include where possible notes on access to further information.

You can access the ‘Find a Grave®’ website using this detail – https://www.findagrave.com
Once onto the website, if you enter Gresham in the cemetery location field and select Gresham Norfolk you will find over 300 burial records, many with very good photographs.

I have free access to the General Register Office (GRO) GRO.GOV.UK, which I used gravestone data to find out some more information on births and deaths on a few records.
I have access to the Ancestry.co.uk website by subscription which I used with a few records notes.
If you wish do more research you can access the Norfolk Records Office online via https://www.archives.norfolk.gov.uk
Most indexes of documents and records on Gresham All Saints Church in Norfolk can only be seen by visiting the Norfolk Records Office.
