Monkton St Nicholas Headstones & Memorials
« on: Sunday 04 November 12 16:37 GMT (UK) »
For anyone interested I have now completed an 82 page document (currently in draft format) photographing, recording and researching the last remaining headstones that stand around the walls of Monkton St Nicholas Churchyard. Added to this I have recorded & researched all the remaining internal memorials of Monkton St Nicholas Church.

Included in the above are the W.W. 1 and W.W. 2 plaques that are in the church, I have research from the W.W. 1 plaque not listed on any other website and I have additions from the village that are not listed at all on the W.W. 2 plaque. In addition I have included ex-servicemen who served and returned, the later covering the period from the early 1800s upto the late 20th century.

I have researched the immediate families of all the above, my transcription of the Monkton St Nicholas Parish Registers for 1711 to the 1930s being of great help to obtain the fullest research behind these headstones. This complements my transcription of Pembroke St Mary and St Michael P.R.s 1711 to 1930s.

The above can also be used in conjunction with Monkton L.T.A.s at;

The highlight of my efforts has been my discovery of the headstone of Joe King (See Pembs People by Richard Rose page 98 to 100), a headstone thought to have been long lost.

I am freely willing to supply details in answer to queries on a specific person in the village
