Have you contacted Bereavement Services at the council to confirm that there is actually a headstone there?

No I haven't contacted them because Yorkshire Indexers found the grave for me along with others belonging to my family but in different cemeteries.I have the no etc of the grave and I was told there is a head stone.The grave belongs to Laurence Wear,it's in an old part of the cemetery.He was a brother of my gran's.There was a sister who died young who is buried in Beckett St in a communal grave.My great grandparents Fanny and Tom Wear are buried in Shadwell Cemetery Leeds,I have photos of all these graves I'm just missing Laurence.

I have taken many hundreds of  pictures of headstones from Hunslet Cemetery and uploaded to Billiongraves but I don't believe Laurence Wear was on any of them.

I still have a lot of the cemetery to cover so if you know the location, maybe I can help?
