Gravestones - surnames beginning P - S

John Roadley

The number against each surname below can be found on the churchyard plan here The Parish Church Graveyard

Many of the gravestones are very worn and it has not yet been possible to give full inscriptions but we are still working on them! Where just a number or word is illegible, questions marks have been used. Otherwise ‘more inscription’ shows that we have more to do.
