Graves in the Churchyard

cist burial 2

Remains of a Cist Grave

Obviously, over the centuries that the parishioners of the village have been buried in the Churchyard, before its closure in 1883, the number of graves must have run into thousands.

In a survey carried out in the Churchyard of All Saint’s Parish Church, Ruskington, by R. Wood in 1980, a total of 156 graves were identified by having either a Headstone or some other form of grave marker.

This site uses the 1980 details along with an up-to-date re-evaluation, surveyed by the Author in 2016/7.

Those listed below are – for the time being – all that can be recognised. Even then, some of the identities attached to the graves must be regarded as doubtful.

The Graves identified are shown on the following Sketch Map. For analysis purposes they will be organised into 6 sub-sections according to their location in the Churchyard. [These plans can be accessed via the ” Mapping the Churchyard ” page.]

Downloadable .pdf files can be accessed, via the different ‘Sections‘ pages, detailing the Family History and lives of those buried in Ruskington Parish Churchyard.

[N.B. The Grave reference number in the first column below refers to the reference on the Graveyard Plans, contained in this site. These plans can be accessed via the ‘ Mapping the Churchyard ‘ page. For an Alphabetical List go to the other page.]
