A NOTE ON PLOT M – THE OLD CHURCHYARD The entries in the index below for the ‘Old Churchyard’ (referred to as plot ‘M’ in this Record) are taken from a survey carried out by the late Mr Geoff Waygood of Parkend.
The inscriptions survey of the Old Churchyard was given by Mr Waygood to the church to enable funds to be raised for the church through sale of copies.
Copies of Mr Waygood’s survey are held by the church and enquiries can be made via email to email@example.com
The Gloucestershire Family History Society are grateful to the Clergy and Parishioners of Parkend St Paul’s for their co-operation in this project.
This is the version on CD. A download version is available here.
This CD will be of interest to anyone fascinated by maritime history regarding not only the Pilots but the names of ships, places they were registered, their port of origin and the diverse cargos carried into the ports of the Severn estuary.
The Log itself appears to be an account register relating to charges made for Piloting Ships from the Bristol Channel to Gloucester etc It is a fascinating insight into shipping in the Severn Estuary during this period, and whether you’re interested in the movement of goods world wide, the history of ships, or the fascinating place names where the ships were registered or the goods were loaded, that completed their journey to the ports of Lydney, Sharpness, Gloucester etc. and not forgetting the families that acted as Pilots it is a fascinating read.
This CD contains a full transcription of the register 386 individual images of the pages transcribed, and a short history of the Severn Pilots.

This contains the following Registers :
Birth Registers : 1642 – 1837
Burial Registers : 1655 – 1908
Marriage Registers : 1656 – 1908
About 1837-1840, James Bowden Digest Clerk and William Manley Recording Clerk of the Society of Friends compiled three registers of Births, Marriages & Burials from, it is believed, the minutes of Monthly Meeting Registers created by individual Meeting Houses in the Gloucestershire & Wiltshire area commencing around 1650.
These Registers held by Gloucestershire Archives have been transcribed together with a fourth register of later compilation onto this CD.
The original Monthly Meeting Registers are now in the National Archives at Kew possibly under RG6 & Images of the same can been viewed on The Society of Genealogists Web Site. Please bear in mind that the original documents from 1650 to 1837 were transcribed in 1840 and these have been transcribed again in 2011. Therefore the indexes on this CD should only be used as a guide until the original documents can be viewed. Please read the Transcribers notes by Gloucester Family History Society on this CD for more information. However to whet the appetite notable families such as Joseph Fry chocolate maker can be found as well as faraway places such as America the Caribbean, and English Counties from the North to South .
Index of Cremations in Gloucester Crematorium from 11 August 1987 to 28 July 1998
The Crematorium was built in the grounds of the Coney Hill Cemetery and the first cremation took place there on the 7 January 1953. Ashes were then either scattered or interred in the Crematorium grounds, on Graves in both Tredworth and Cony Hill Cemeteries, or removed for private disposal in other locations.
Transcription Notes While every care has been taken with this transcription, errors inevitably do occur. Where a discrepancy with the Death Index has been found, this had been noted.
There are some abbreviations:- Rec = Recordia Res = Reserve BOM = Book of Memories BMD = Birth, Marriage and Death Index
Also there are references for example HH1, this indicated where the ashes were scattered and if there is a Plaque, this is often places on kerbs as near as possible to the scattering. Plaque’s and Rose Bushes last for 20 years before they are due for renewal.
This Index does not contain the Residence or Place of Death Addresses but if the death has been shown to be outside of the Gloucestershire or Forest of Dean Registration District, we have tried to give an indication to the area of death. These addresses have been removed to maintain confidentially but these details may be obtained from the address below. Stillbirths that may have been entered have not been included and all children that died under the age of 1 year have been entered as 0 years in line with the entries in the Civil Registration Index.
Crematorium Office, Coney Hill Road, Gloucester GL4 4PA. They will look up three entries free of charge but for any extra searches, a charge could be levied.
GFHS thank the staff at the Crematorium Office for all their assistance in the production of these CD’s.
