The Churchyard

Catalogue of the Churchyard monuments

Peter Beaven has spent three years cataloguing the monument and inscriptions in our Church and Churchyard, on behalf of the Berkshire Family History Society. He has produced an amazingly detailed record of memorials from 1683 - 2011. This includes details of the memorials inside the Church and burial details of those listed on the war memorial at the Lych-gate. There are photographs of each memorial and a plan showing the location of each grave.

The CD can be purchased from the website of the Berkshire Family History Society and is priced at £7:50.

Peter based his investigations on the Church records, which have been maintained in recent years by David Bainbridge. We thank both David Bainbridge and Peter Beaven for their efforts in preserving this information, which is proving to be very valuable to families with relatives buried in our Churchyard.

 The Church has a copy of the BFHS CD. This is available for viewing in the Church Office. The office will now also take over the responsibility for maintaining the Church records of burials. There are copies of these in the Church Office. Alternatively, you may send queries regarding the location of graves and inscriptions to Ken Perrett (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
