The following Headstone information was recorded in May 1999. It only
contains the factual data, names and dates. The abbreviations used are:
d.= date; Y = years; M = months if following a number; W = wife; H =
husband; S = son; D = daughter; F = father and M = mother. Where two
people were listed on one Headstone and it was readily apparent that
they were husband and wife, H or W of…. was added in such cases. Family
information know to the authors appear in brackets. While every attempt
was made to ensure accuracy, if a discrepancy is noted the actual headstone
inscription shall take precedence.
