A Burial & Memorial Record of Astley
Churchyard, Shropshire 2007 latest
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
