Church Graveyard Project
A History Society team has documented the graveyards at All Saints including photographs of all headstones and memorials, transcriptions of  the inscriptions - where this is possible - and maps of the entire area, enabling  people easily to locate their relatives' graves. The project is contained in an Excel database with associated Word files and jpg photos. It can easily be searched and the information will be updated from time to time. Copies are available on an 8GB memory stick at a cost of £9.
