Pink Hill Cemetery

Pitcher

The Pink Hill Cemetery is located in Pitcher on the East side of Pink Hill Road, South of its junction with Cemetery Road . It is a Cemetery of roughly rectangular shape, approximately 70x80 feet. The burial ground was in use between 1819 and 1861.

The data presented for this cemetery is extracted from the booklet Gone But Not Forgotten, by Thomas Lloyd and used with the kind permission of the City of Norwich, which had authorized the work. The survey was published in 1981. Since the survey was that of markers and stones only, Lloyd did not attempt to verify or research the burials. Hence, there are some 4 burials he recorded as "unknown" where the headstone was missing or unreadable. As the Cemetery is an old one there may, of course, be additional unidentified burials.
