Hello peeps,
can I ask please are there any headstones left at christchurch church yard. I have just found out my family of Harringtons were burried here. No doubt headstones from 1840 are probally no longer in the church yard.

best wishes

There are some old ones up against the buildings at the back which are going to be demolised and some old stones inlaid into the footpath around the Church.

Hello many thanks
how sad these stones are discarded against walls and piled up. i have just found out my x 3 grt grandfather is burried at the church. Not sure if it was a paupers grave as its possible two of his daughters may be burried there as well.

again thank you

Actually I don't think they're piled up or discarded, it's just that the building at the back of the park was built after the gravestones were put in, so they're adjacent to the wall. I'll have a look out for Harringtons next time I walk through.
