St. Andrew’s Miserden Monumental Inscriptions

 

Survey of Memorials in St Andrew’s Church and Churchyard, Miserden 2014-15.

Introduction.

This database of Memorials is based mainly on their physical inspection and photographic recording over the 12 month period between July 2014 and July 2015. However, it does also refer to four other documents.

1. A hand-written set of indexes of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials at Miserden from 1574 to

1974 which is currently held by the church. I understand that this was probably prepared by

a church-warden who extracted the information from the Parish registers. They are

remarkable documents, neatly written and organised by date and surname – not a simple

task before computerisation. Where relevant I have given the burial date from this index as

well as the date of death from the gravestone. They don’t always tally and researchers

should always check the original Parish registers to minimise any transcription errors.

2. The “Record of Church furnishings” for St Andrew’s Church prepared 1995-97 by The

National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS). This provides

enormous detail of the Memorials inside the church, including the stained glass windows. A

few of the older inscriptions are in latin and, in most of these cases, an English translation is

contained in the NADFAS report.

3. Ralph Bigland’s “Historical, Monumental, and Genealogical Collections relative to the County

of Gloucester”. This was first published at the end of the eighteenth century but was reissued

in the 1990s by Bristol & Gloucestershire Archaeological Society. Three pages of this

relate to the Miserden inscriptions and they, in theory, list the gravestones existing in the

churchyard c1790, but it appears far from comprehensive: there are many current

gravestones which pre-date 1790 but which are not listed by Bigland. However there are

many listed in his book which no longer exist and, for the sake of completeness, I have

included all these in this database. For copyright reasons, in these cases, I have only used the

name and year of death (supplemented by the burial date from the register index) and

researchers will need to refer to Bigland to see what, if any, further information is available.

4. A map of the old churchyard. Unfortunately there was no existing associated list of graves.
