Memorial Inscriptions of the Parish
Churchyard and the Baptist Church Burial Ground
This transcript of the Memorial Inscriptions
of the Abbey Churchyard was originally made shortly before the majority
of tombstones were removed in 1977. But when the data was being prepared
for publication it was soon realised that earlier records contained
extra information, for instance of stones that had disappeared or faded
before the 1970s.
Consequently, it was decided to delay
publication in order to compare the data with that from all four
other known records of the churchyard inscriptions, made c.1710-30,
1735, 1885 and 1952.
All five sets of records are included in
this Project, along with additional records from the Baptist burial
ground, a bibliography, an index of personal names, and a plan showing
the exact location of each churchyard gravestone before removal.
101 pages, with a bibliography and an
overall personal name index.
