All Saints Church Raughton Head Parish Magazine Rose Castle
Map of Churchyard
I have started to try and create a map of the churchyard and thought I would share it with you to see if you think I am on the right track. There are 200 memorials (numbered 1 to 200) in the notebook but some of them are listed as blank or illegible.

I have only put a few numbers on the map as yet and the information corresponding to the number below (I still have lots of them to write up and will need to check everything). It is a bit tricky to try and work out where some of them are since they are interspersed with later gravestones that are not in the notebook.

I hope this gives you a bit more information about what I am doing.

Kind regards
