Barwick-in-Elmet Historical Society

Village Memorials / Inscriptions




The Churchyards of All Saints Church, Barwick contain many 100s of memorial stones or markers. Since 2013 the Society has been recording and transcribing them.

This has been completed a number of times before by individuals or organisations. In 1908 Mr. Lumb recorded many in his book "Wills Registers and Monumental Inscriptions of Barwick in Elmet". A further transcript was completed on part of the Churchyard about 1977 and the Womans Institute completed a survey in 1982.

In the 18th and 19th Century various Antiquarians visited the Church and recorded the odd memorial. All of the previous transcripts miss areas out areas of the churchyard and many fail to record the full inscriptions. The Historical Society's transcript includes the full surviving details and a photograph of each memorial. We are also combining our new record with the previous transcripts revealing many memorials which have disappeared over the years.

Our transcript is almost complete and is a very useful resource for Researchers and Family Historians. Work is now ongoing to cross-check our records to the burial registers. An alphabetical list of surnames is available below, use this to identify the memorial number and then find this on the memorial list.

Notes.
1) Photographs are not included online but where noted that one is available a copy can be requested from chapelcottage@btinternet.com
2) Plans are currently in the process of been prepared and will be uploaded at a later date.
