Grinton Churchyard Photographs and Monumental Inscriptions


These photos of the Grinton Graveyard gravestones etc. were taken in 2018 and consequently no graves after this date appear here.

The Monumental Inscriptions are a combination of my work and that of the late Jilly Cooper. The syntax used is: question mark = single unreadable character, enclosed by curly braces { } means unreadable words, enclosed by square brackets [ ] are comments by me.

The index consists of a table of surnames (below), each being linked to the first image of that surname. To get to the rest of the same surname images, simply use the scroll facilities on each succeeding page.

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

I made no attempt to remove grass from graves (no tools) but tried to remove the moss etc. from the graves which consist of a cross.

My apologies for those photographs with camera shake - I seem to be expert at choosing windy days to take photographs.

If you can identify the names on the "Unknown" graves, please drop me a line by email (use the "Report Problems" link at the bottom of the relevant page).

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.

You will appreciate that there is ample scope for errors in this, so if you find any, please drop me a line - there is a link to the error form at the bottom of each page.

Happy hunting!

Colin Hinson.
