Churchyard Memorials

 

Over the centuries since the Church was established there have been unknown numbers of people buried in the churchyard. There are over 400 memorials in the Churchyard and in 2012 a member of the Heritage Group, Peter Carter, surveyed all of them and he has produced a burial index with accompanying details of all the memorials. His excellent survey builds on the work of previous surveys in the 1950s and 1985-86. The index was revised and updated again in 2022 and a copy can be downloaded here.

The burial plan is hanging in the Church and visitors are encouraged to view it and to use it to locate individual burials.
