Welcome

As a family genealogist and headstone photographer since 1982, I have visited many cemeteries throughout Texas.  There are times when the cemetery is large, that I have had to go to the office and request a grave location.  Having a review of what to expect from the office staff prior to my visiting with them would have been a big help to me.

Volunteer cemetery photographers are usually local people fulfilling a request from family members or friends who live outside the driving distance. There are many reasons why someone would want a copy of a headstone. Perhaps it is for genealogical purposes, used as documentation of birth & death dates for admission into a society, or maybe just to make sure a headstone was actually set for the deceased.

 The volunteers are providing  a free service, unless they have made other arrangements with the requester. Regardless, the cemetery and funeral home have been paid for their services, which shouldn't stop at the end of the funeral.

This brings up another option for using this site. If you are scouting around for a cemetery and funeral home for a family member or as pre-funeral planning, would you rather go with a company which has a proven record of GOOD customer service, AFTER you are gone? Do you want your family and friends to have to deal with disgruntled staffers?

Before you purchase a funeral plan or visit an office to inquire about a headstone location, check this site. You may be glad to you did.

If you are a genealogist, cemetery photographer or a volunteer, please consider becoming a Reviewer. Having a more complete list of cemeteries benefits all of us.

This site was started for two reasons.

1  To give volunteers, genealogist and families looking for a burial site, some where to read a review of cemeteries and funeral homes
2. To give a pat on the back to the cemetery staff who are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable
   
We hope we have fulfilled those two points within the site.
