About the photographs

In July 2014 we began taking photographs of the memorials which had been transcribed by volunteers in 1990, and in September 2015 we finished the task.

Photo opposite - memorial to the Tudor Edwardes sisters.

The inscriptions on many of the memorials are weathering at an alarming rate and some of the inscriptions recorded in 1990 are now either very difficult to read, or obscured by moss, lichen, ivy, branches, toppling or sinkage. As the inscriptions had already been recorded we have chosen in most cases to show a general view of the graves, not wanting to disturb the churchyard or risk upsetting families or friends. In a few cases families have restored fallen or sunken memorials since the first photos were taken.

Headstones emplaced after 1990 are mostly not recorded, but inscriptions and tablets added to graves have been noted; you may also spot one or two burials that were omitted in error from the first transcription.

In a few cases we have included photographs of modern burials, for example that of village historian Joan Bradshaw of Grange Farm. For the purposes of the web-site, we have allocated modern burials a new series of numbers starting with 400. You will see that the 400 series numbers are not shown on the 1990 plan of the churchyard but we have indicated in the right hand column of the table where these memorials can be found.

This web-page is the latest version with corrections and all the photographs taken relating to the 1990 survey.

The inscriptions

The original survey of the churchyard was undertaken by a team of volunteers circa 1990, before the advent of laptop computers and digital cameras. The survey was undertaken by local historians Cora Weaver, June Hebden and Raymond Ward.

Ray Ward passed away peacefully at The Boynes Nursing Home on July 28th 2011, aged 97 years. He had been Head Teacher Somers Park Avenue Primary School, a supporter of Malvern Museum, and was a founder member of the Malvern Hills District Footpath Society. June Hebden passed away in 2013. Cora Weaver is the well-known author of a number of books about the Victorian 'water cure'.

Details of the monuments and inscriptions were recorded, where legible, in reporter's notebooks, and a pen and ink plan made of the churchyard.

For example, see above the memorial in memory of nursing sisters Emmie Tudor Edwardes died 1928 and her sister Frances Tudor Edwardes of St Davids, Wells Road, Great Malvern which was described in the notebooks as - 'carved stone of a maiden wearing headband, holding flowers in right hand, long loose gown, knotted half way down left arm'. You will find the inscriptions on the front and rear of the base.

This web-page contains a transcription from the notebooks which it is hoped will be a useful resource for family and local historians. You should note however, the burial register of the church contains over 1,000 names and only a proportion of those have legible markers. In most cases older wooden markers have disappeared completely, and in a few cases very old graves have been reused.

In the churchyard you will occasionally find the graves of local families grouped together.

Many residents lived to a ripe old age, but sadly some died as children, teenagers, as a result of accidents, and in war.

Inside the church you will find a small wooden cross set on the north wall, which is a memorial to the grandson of Rector James Bateman Wathen (plot 17). He was John Wathen Eyton-Lloyd, Second Lieutenant, of the 10th Squadron Royal Flying Corps, who died on 24th June 1917 aged 22 years and is buried in France.

MemorialNext to the memorial to John Wathen Eyton-Lloyd on the north wall of the church is a small plant-holder in memory of Harry R Lockley who was knocked down by a motorist near the village pond.

The inscription reads:

In loving memory

of Harry R Lockley

July 3rd 1973

Records (1845 - 1990)

The table below has five columns. In the first column is a plot number in the range 1 to 323) which relates to the plan made of the churchyard in 1990 and should enable you to walk the churchyard and locate a grave. Columns 2, 3 and 4 record the name of the deceased and year of death. Column 5 records the inscription, a link to the photo of the memorial, and in some cases additional information about the person, which is shown in italics.

The entry 'mound' indicates the possibility of a modern burial prior to placement of a headstone. The ground is usually allowed to settle for many months before a memorial is erected.

Memorials to those cremated are mainly along the north, south and west walls of the church.

Those few photographs of modern memorials have been allocated a new series of 400 plot numbers in the second table below, but you are cautioned that these are not the same as the numbers used in the burial register and master plan of the churchyard held by the Churchwarden.
