Users can locate gravesites and other points of interest throughout the cemetery, generate front-and-back pictures of a marker or monument, and receive step-by-step directions to these locations. The app also provides emergency and event notifications and the ability to share on popular social media sites. Users can save favorite places in My Content to create their own custom walking tours.

Grave sites

I wanted to go see R Lee Ermey’s grave and it’s not in the app but his own website says he is buried there

Constant error messages

Very disappointing.
I have a several friends and family listed in my contents. In the past, the listings would show me the location on the map. Now all I get is an error message.

Very helpful but a couple of issues

A very helpful app. Only problem is that with every update you need to erase and then reload all of your favorites. Otherwise the pictures aren't shown and a can't download message appears.
Did find a couple of instances where after searching for a name and then clicking on result takes you to a picture of different headstone.
