Overview

  • As part of the Shirenewton 800 project celebrating 800 years of Shirenewton Church, we have digitised the graveyard records.
  •  
  • There is a hyperlinked PDF file in which each grave has a hyperlink taking you to the associated record in the graveyard register.
  •  
  • The source material is also available for download from this page.
  •  
  • The burial records index from 1771 onwards listed on this page are courtesy of the Shirenewton Local History Society. These are based on the records held at The National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth.
  •  
  • Scanned copies of the actual current Church burial register are towards the bottom of ‘The Burial Register’ section on this page (look for ‘Scan of the Register of Burials 1955-date’)
  • Thanks

  • Our thanks to Bill Clark for coordinating the project (and doing a lot of the digitisation work) and to Tom and Claire Lewis for helping him with a lot of the legwork i.e. going round the graves and looking at who was where, and updating the spreadsheet accordingly. Additionally, many hours have been spent by your webmaster converting it all into webpages and cross referencing with hyperlinks to bookmarks, etc.
  •  
  • There may well be errors in the transcription and in other areas. If anyone identifies any anomalies or errors, please let us know and we’ll verify and, where appropriate, rectify! Henceforth we aim to updated the records annually.

The Graveyard

The graveyard is divided into 11 zones, with zones A to J (no I) & L being for graves and zone K being for the burial of ashes.

To view the layout of the graveyard with the zones marked-up click here (opens in a new window/tab).

For an ability to zoom in, etc. download the PDF file from the section below.

Hyperlinked PDF Grave Map & Records

To open the hyperlinked grave map click here - note this has some extras graves not shown on the layout above and is generally updated annually. The PDF file will open in a new window or tab. Each grave has a hyperlink which will take you to the individual record which will be displayed at the top of the appropriate page - although see note 2 below. Note: The text in the url (which will be displayed in bottom left of your browser window) after the '#' refers to the grave number and occupant. For example; http://www.shirenewtonchurch.info/2020_graveyard_A.html#A4_William_Holder is linked to grave A4 and the first listed occupant is William Holder.

The records are listed in tabular format, one page per zone (except for D & E which are on the same page). To open a specific zone's listing page please select it below. The page will open in a new window or tab.

Zone A; Zone B; Zone C; Zone D; Zone E; Zone F; Zone G; Zone H; Zone J; Zone K; Zone L; Unknown Location.

The master Excel spreadsheet which has all of the burial records and on which these pages are based is here.

Note 1: Where there are multiple occupants in a single grave, only one name is linked from the PDF. This is the first name in the listing.

Note 2: If the record is near the bottom of a listing, the page will scroll as much as it can. Obviously the extent of scrolling is dependent on window size, screen size, etc. This means that the record may not be at the top of the page but will be in the displayed area. This is a limitation of HTML.

Note 3: All grave locations are approximate.

Note 4: The links from the PDF don't work on iPads or iPhones. This is a known Safari browser issue.
