Additions to the Archive
The following updates were incorporated on 13th February 2017:
Completion of 1884 area of the churchyard with the addition of subsections C & D.
The churchyard sections currently available on this website (as at 13th February 2017) are as follows:
1956 Section (full area) - includes burials from 1956 - 2015.
1884 Section (full area) - includes burials from 1884 - 2015.
NOTE: The 1884 and 1956 Sections of the Churchyard are now complete and no further updates are planned - except for error corrections.
Note: We have included records and photographs for more recent burials that have been identified during the 2014 & 2015 photographic surveys of the churchyard.
Digitisation of the final section the churchyard, the 'Old Churchyard', has commenced but the records are unlikely to be included on this website until mid-2017.
The images provided on this website comprise both scanned copies of the original survey records and also the more recent photographs (from 2011, 2014, 2015 & 2016). The scanned images are of the hand-drawn sketches and inscriptions, made during the 1973-1981 surveys. Colour photographs of the headstones are being added to these scanned images (as and when available), but are not replacing the scanned documents.
Note: Some of the colour photographic images show extended or slightly different inscriptions to those recorded in the 1973-1981 survey records, but these changes are then reflected in the updated online memorial records and/or comments.
