This is still up and coming but you may be lucky, plus it would help if anyone could post there certs. and the unwanted ones too.

I also suggest BMDshare, the more people who add the better.

Would also suggest checking out

http://www.gravestonephotos.com

Increasing no. of areas catalogued. I suggest checking any possible match as sometimes there can be a memorial miles away from where the person originated.

If you are lucky emough to get a match, do ask to have a look at the photo, you would be amazed at how much info can be found on some gravestones.

Rushden Heritage

It is a good site for the surrounding district of Rushden, Northant.
It has so much information on there.
