Hadnall & District History Group

St Mary Magdalene, Hadnall
Churchyard Memorials Survey

June 2019

Last update: 9 October 2019

The History group began a re-survey of the burial memorials in Hadnall Churchyard in May 2019.  Using the 1996 Shropshire Family History Society's Survey as a basis, we began by updating the record of the existing graves and adding the new ones.  Memorials that were arranged round the edge of the churchyard which had been removed from their original site were looked at and checked where that was practical - otherwise the original data was retained.  Where memorial deterioration has taken place the photographs(s) show the current state, but the original information is retained.

The pattern of display will eventually reflect this Group's work in Astley Churchyard (part of the same benfice as Hadnall) to provide the same kind of resources for everyone to access.  
Once the survey is completed, updates will keep the records up-to-date in both churchyards.

Resources being produced -  available are in blue, others are not yet completed:

Grave stone index by number  with prefix "A", "C" and "D" eg A1, C2, D3 plus those B graves still extant (See interactive map)
Alphabetic list of the memorials in place
Grave stone index by number  with prefix "B" eg B2 and some A223 -A 236  ie those grave stones which have been moved to the outer edges of the churchyard.
Memorials index by number  with suffix "Ch" eg 3CH (See interactive map inside the church) 
Interactive maps of the graves - currently "A", "C", "D" and those "B" grave stones still extant
