HI Michael

Here it is. It is in a poor state I am afraid.

If anyone is offended by me putting on the headstones please say as I have no wish to offend. 
As I said previously as soon as they are viewed I will remove.

This Thomas Greenough could be the son of Francis and Catherine Greenough

The grave you see in the picture has already weatherd badly !
but this is what i managed to get from it, which was not a lot !

IN MEMORY OF THO. GREENOUGH HUSBAND OF ANN GREENOUGH WHO DIED FEB __ 4, 18__  ____ _____ ___ 5 YEARS OF ____

As you see the dates have nearly gone, and in a way hard to guess what the words and numbers could be.
If this is the son of Francis then his grave, is just a little further up.

HI Ian

Thanks for what you sent me  ;D all arrived safely.

Still can't see Francis will have another look and of course if I find it you can put it on your web site.

Give me a moment.

Hi Ian

This is the previous picture I took and I do not think it is there now.

When I visited today there was nearly no graves at all on the left hand side coming in through from Sheep Street.

Sorry it is not good hopefully I may be mistaken and can re-take a good one for you soon.

Going to bed now. Will take of Thos Greenough's now.

Nite.

This is what i think make this so great !
With the little work i have done and your pictures and then Alans work from the register would should be able to build up a bigger picture and maybe just maybe be able to fill in some of the blank dates !
As you see Thomas Greenoughs grave is in a bad condition, so i will alter my transcript to include that of Alans date from the Parish Register.
I was sure that Francis Greeenoughs grave was standing but i do remember that many where laying down.
I think i did this at the right time by the sounds of it !
So if any of you lot out there live near a grave yard transcribe it, it may of been done before, but you may find your work will either show new ones added or the deteration of our graves, as once gone, that history is lost forever!

Also the date of Thomas Greenough burial Feb 21 1811 well this then could be Francis Greenoughs father ! as Francis was born abt 1796
Not his brother or son as i first thought.

Sandy, thank you so much for the photos.

I remember (in the olden days) that sheep grazed in St Sepulchres churchyard. Looks like they need them back, it is rather overgrown.

Though the worst churchyard I have been in recently was Long Buckby. Definitely not the place to be wearing sandals. Hip waders would have been more appropriate.

Hi Marilyn

I thought Alan told me you lived in Canada.  ;D  ;D  ;D

I couldn't see the Boyes headstone.

Hubby and I went to do the Long Buckby Church 3 times !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and took
about 400 graves and gave up (well for now).

I know exactly what you mean though it is the 1st time (except for today) that I
have given up half way.

How many did you get around too ?.

Cheers Sandy
