I found the gravestone of my 2 x ggfather on this site. He died in an asylum and I had no idea where he was buried. I've now got a photograph, and know that he was buried with both his wives and two daughters, one of whom died as a child and I didn't know about before seeing the picture. I was also able to correct/add to the details for the gravestone.
