Burials in Wellington, Shropshire
« on: Saturday 09 October 10 20:16 BST (UK) »
Hi,

Can anyone tell me where I would look for burials and headstones in Wellington from about 1821-1900?

I am thinking Christ Church and All Saints, are there any headstones there or can you point me in the direction of  a cemetery and are there any records to be found on-line?

Thankyou,

Ann

Ann, I know this is an old post, but if you are still interested, I can tell you that both Christchurch and All Saints have headstones, though not in their original positions - they have been sited around the outskirts of the churchyards. 
If you need a grave photographing in Wellington, please let me know - both these churches and the cemetery are easy walking distance from me, Jacky
