ST BRITIUS CHURCHYARD
The churchyard around the church is closed. The
churchyard extension across
Station Road is where are burials and burials of ashes takes place.
The churchyard is divided into four quadrants (North
West, North East, South West and
South East) with a fifth area (South) designated as our cremation area.
We are indebted to Wendy Morgan for her painstaking work to record the inscriptions on each plot.
There are 3 indexes available:
Alphabetical Name Index (Burials & Ashes Combined)
Index by Plot Number (Burial Plots)
Index by Plot Number (Cremation Area - Ashes)
Use the alphabetical index to locate known individuals
clicking one the link to
go to the hand drawn maps of the grave plots. The row number will help.
Double clicking on the map will give an enlarged chart.
The indexes by plot enables a known plot to be located.
Burial of ashes following a cremation
will most likely be in the cremation area but in the past, and sometimes more recently, ashes
are buried on the grave plots and are therefore found in the index of burial plots.
There are some incomplete records of graves in the
original graveyard around the church, only one
person is remembered through the award of a special licence, namely Aisla Walwyn whose ashes
are buried near the cottage opposite the church door. This information will be added in due course.
We are planning to accurately measure the churchyard
extension and create digital maps.
The plot numbers cannot be changed since these are linked to the formal burial register held in
