A STUDY OF THE GRAVESTONES OF
NORTHALLERTON UPPER CEMETERY
Compiled by Robert Walker
For the purpose of the study, the cemetery has been divided into sections and labeled A to J inclusive, as shown on the attached plan.
Each area is then divided from front to back into rows, in accordance with the way most of the stones face, ie from east to west, or south east to north west.
Each stone is then given a number according to its position in the row from left to right, ie from south to north, or from south west to north east.
The exception to this are the military graves in area J which face eastwards and as such are numbered from north to south.
The inscriptions are transcribed as seen and have not been checked against any cemetery register entries.
Because of varying degrees of legibility due to erosion, the following conventions have been used:
Where a word or number is followed immediately by a
question mark, this means there is a question over
that word or number, eg died 6? July, means there is
a question over the figure 6.
A question mark within text means that a specific
number, word or phrase cannot be read, eg died ? July
Where a larger piece of text is illegible, the
abbreviation illeg is used or some other phrase to
describe its condition.
Punctuation may not be as on the stones.
