We now have burial records for the unconsecrated side of the cemetery. This is where many of the graves are unmarked as originally only a small wooden cross would have stood. Over the years they have disappeared and not been replaced.

If you would like a look up please contact us and we will reply in a personal message.

We would like to thank Eaton Bray Parish Council. Special thanks should go to Parish Clerk Heidi Head and Councillor Joan Conner who toiled through and transcribed these records.
