A Burial & Memorial Record of Astley Churchyard, Shropshire 2007 latest update:- 02/02/2015

by the Hadnall & District History Group

This research represents the work of a group of members of the Hadnall & District History Group. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Rev Rob Haarhoff and his parishioners for allowing us to do the recording. We would also like to thank the Shropshire Family History Society for their help. We have used their numbering system and added to it where appropriate. A special thank you to Ian Dodds for making the interactive burials map.


It was decided that the best format for the accessability of the data was to create an off-line "website". The CD contains this "website" of links to all the grave records we have been able to record - matching up text and photographs. In addition, the data is available in spreadsheet form so the records can be sorted by other researchers. We have also included memorials from within and without the church. Some headstones that have been moved to a position under the holly tree have not been recorded due the dense undergrowth!

It is hoped that these formats will be easy to keep updated with additions and amendments. Any additional information will be welcomed. Please post to the address below or e-mail to the History Group at (history@hadnall.org.uk)


Copyright of all the materials is claimed by the Hadnall & District History Group, but applications to publish materials are welcome - please contact the Treasurer at the address given below. Any profit from the sale of these materials will be shared with the Church and the Hadnall& District History Group Such money will be used to develop other local history projects undertaken by the Group. We thank you for your purchase.
