Starting with the older sections, all our records are, at present, being checked for accuracy. We are collating Monument Inscriptions register entries and digitizing the compilation. When one considers there are over 16500 burial plots, and even if only one person is interred and that the cemetery area is over 40 acres, this is going to take some time to ensure accuracy. Any dates of death we provide can either be the Monument date, or the date of interment as this was usually carried out within a few days of death.
Please bear in mind not all Monument Inscriptions are correct. For various reasons errors crept in to some inscriptions. The inscriptions should be used as a reference point and other research should be carried out to ensure accuracy. In the past researchers have been known to find previously unknown family members. We will always endeavour to give the most accurate information we can.
Please supply as much information as possible.
