Burial Index for Wotton Cemerery, Horton Road, Gloucester

CD VERSION

WOTTON BURIAL GROUND, HORTON ROAD, GLOUCESTER

If you walk down Horton Road from the Barnwood Road direction on your left hand side there is a small burial ground which is now a nature reserve. The land was originally given to the Southgate Congregational church in 1770 by a John Beale who was High Sheriff of Gloucester in 1751. In 1848 they decided to use it as a cemetery.

There are two registers of burials and a cash book from 1860 onwards held at Gloucestershire Archives ref:- D6143/2/10, D6143/2/11 and D6026/6/42.

The Trustees of this burial ground were the Deacons of the Southgate Congregational Church. The first burial being a JANE SMART buried 24th March aged 17 of Barton Street, Gloucester whose cause of death is given as a cold. The first book which covers 1848 to 1914, as well as giving details of the deceased also gives the cause of death. During this period there were over 1400 burials.

There were requests for extending the burial ground in 1863 and an Inspector form the Home Secretary was sent to visit and to listen to representations. There were objections from the management of the Asylum which overlooked the burial ground stating that the burials were having a detrimental effect on the patients. The request for the extension was refused.

All inscriptions on headstones had to be approved by a committee and the original fees for graves up to 6 feet deep were:- burial in a common grave 7s/6d, Children under 10 5s, private graves 15s, brick graves £1/16s/6d and vaulted graves £3/13s (full details of fees are given in the registers).

Due to the large number of burials it was agreed in 1913 that new graves would be for relatives by blood or marriage of those already buried there.

The last entry is for the burial of ashes on 9th June 1983 of Miss Beatrice Wright of 10 St Michaels Square, Gloucester aged 89. The number of burials totalled over 1500.

These names have now been indexed and are available for searching on the GFHS computers at its new home in the Gloucestershire Archives Hub in Alvin Street, Gloucester.  So if you have not found your ancestor being buried in the Gloucester Cemeteries it may be worth looking here.

Thanks go to Liz Jack, Lorraine Jackson and my wife Janette for the work completed in compiling this index.

Monumental Inscriptions for St. Andrew’s, Miserden. (Includes photographs)

 

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

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.

Monumental Inscriptions for St. Katherine’s Matson. (Includes photographs)

Survey of Memorials in St Katharine’s Church and Churchyard,

Matson, Gloucester. 2015-16.

Introduction.

This database of Memorials is based mainly on their physical inspection and photographic recording over the period between July 2015 and May 2016. However, it does also reference the following documents:

1. The Church burial registers and their transcriptions. It should be noted that there are occasionally discrepancies between the information in the register and that written on the memorials. The registers do contain information in some cases about the location of the grave, cross referenced to the churchyard layout plans (see below).

2. 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. Two pages of this relate to the Matson inscriptions and they, in theory, list the gravestones and memorials existing in the churchyard c1790, but it may be far from comprehensive. There are many listed in his book which are no longer apparent 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 information from the burial register) and researchers will need to refer to Bigland to see what, if any, further information is available.

3. A plan of the old churchyard originally “revised and renumbered” in Easter 1940 by the Rector, Francis H Charles and subsequently updated through the years, although it has become clear that some of the subsequent additions have not been plotted with any accuracy.

4. Other sketch plans, supplied by the church, of the location of modern graves, using the modern burial register number.
