  1. Trying to find burial / cremation details of ancestor. Your login / registration protocols are sending me from pillar to post and then back again! Cannot get off the roundabout! Will not register me to allow access to online records.

    1. Hi Michael,
      Everything appears to be OK at this end, you are shown as “Registered” and “Active”. Whereabouts in the logging procedure are you finding difficulties?


  2. Hi Mike after using Yorkshire Indexers for years without any problems and finding what I wanted within minutes, this new site has wasted me a lot of time and cannot find out how to get onto Pudsey cemetery Gallery. On the old site if there was a photo it used to just pop up and was so easy to work.
    I asked my friend to join to see if she could get anywhere in case it was just me but she also had problems.
    Why change something when it aint broke? This site is just so frustrating I am sorry to say.

    1. Hi Kath,
      Sorry to hear you are having problems with the website, there were several reasons why we had to change to this new site, security and expense being the two main ones. There are several ways to locate photographs on the site, one is to go directly into the Gallery, in your case select Area – Leeds and District, Cemetery Pudsey, then you can either scroll down and input the Grave Section and Grave number if you have them or if not just scroll to the Keyword box and put in the Surname of the grave occupant, click return (wait a few seconds) and if there is an image it should appear.
      The other way of finding a grave is from the Burials and Inscription menus, here you need to select whether the grave is Municipal or Parish etc, then select Area, Cemetery etc, once you have located the person you are looking for click on the record and at the bottom of the page you are presented with is an icon “Find people in the grave” click on that, if there is an image attached to this entry it should appear at the bottom of that screen.
      Unfortunately, the green hyperlinks to the other people in the grave is not functional yet, we are still working on that.
      I hope this helps, any problems please drop me a line.
