Section 2:

section-2-1

Churchyard – Section 2

This area is in a Northward extension of Section 1, towards the South-west corner of the Church and its Porch.

In this Section there are 19 Grave Markers remaining, the locations of which are shown on the Sketch Plan below.

Graves 32 – 37 form a line on the other side of the path, immediately to the West of the Church Porch

Graves 32 – 37

Although numbered in this Section, for clarity, the locations of Graves 29, 30 and 31 are also shown on Map 5, Section 5.

They are actually on a small ‘island’, bordered by paths, outside the Church Porch.

Most notable of these “island” graves is Grave 31, that of 2 year old Hugh Martindale Myers, one of the last internments before the Churchyard was closed.

Hugh was the infant son of Rev. Arthur and Edith Paulina (née Pickering) Myers, who married in New Brighton on 5 October 1871. From 1870 until 1892 Arthur was the Rector of Ruskington.

Originally the child was buried in a magnificent marble grave with cross and surrounding marble kerbstones – as shown in the photograph – right. Since then, however, it has fallen into a very sad state of disrepair.

A list of the person(s) interred in these graves follows the Plan below (N.B. Some Graves contain more than one burial). Burials in this Section date from 1821 to 1883. The latter date is Hugh Martindale Myers, [Grave 31] the infant son of the Rev. Myers – see above.

The person(s) buried in each of these graves are:
