This website includes photos of a detailed
plan of St. James churchyard with indices
showing who was buried in which plot when a survey was completed in the Summer of 1987. This is an extremely useful resource for anyone who is trying to locate the plot of someone buried here before 1987 (with some additions up to the early 1990s). Unfortunately the website doesn't acknowledge the creators of this excellent plan. Our thanks for that are due to Andrew Howard and Stuart Reynolds who spent their summer holidays after A-levels painstakingly examining, deciphering and accurately plotting every single grave in the entire churchyard.
