Cayton Cemetery Grave Photographs Introduction and List


Cayton Cemetery is situated at the southern end of the village of Cayton, the eastern side of it forming part of the boundary with the hamlet of Killerby. The cemetery is a long narrow plot orientated north - south, the gates being at the northern end and the cremation plots being in the south west corner. The earliest memorial stone is dated 1925 and the cemetery now appears to be close to full capacity. The graves are arranged in three or four long rows with the stones facing inwards towards the path.

One notable grave is that of Czeslaw Bartoszko, a Pole who fought in the Second World War. The cemetery warden told me that the headstone faces away from the main path in the direction of Poland. There are four other war graves in the cemetery, namely those of Sergeant C R Marshall, Sergeant R Sheard, Sick Berth Attendant R H Tyson and Adjutant Edna M Mortimer.

Complete transcriptions of the inscriptions existing in 1998 can be found in the East Yorkshire Family History Society's book 'Cayton Memorial Inscriptions' together with a plan of the cemetery at that date. Where I have attributed identities named on gravestones by their position in relation to others it is on the basis of this book - these are indicated by an asterisk against the surname in the link list below.

These photos of the Cayton Cemetery gravestones etc. were taken in 2017 and consequently no graves after this date appear here.

The links given below take you to the first photo of the grave of the relevant name.

The number for the photograph is given in the caption below the photograph.

There are three sizes of photos: the thumbnail images which link to a page containing a larger image (640 by 480 pixels), and then a full size image which is linked from the previously mentioned larger image. The full size image can of course be saved for your own personal use.
