Bampton Deaths during the period 1813-1867

Transcribed by

Russ Davies

The Bampton Parish Register (Burials) is missing for the period 1813 - 1867. I have tried to recover some of the records using the death announcements in Devon newspaper archives. Unfortunately there are very few records for the earlier "lost" years. I've attached a brief list of the few death announcements that I found. Very few legible grave headstones exist for those on the list. Hopefully it may help somebody.
