Hi all,

My 5x Great-Grandfather, Richard Barrett, was born in the village of Frankton, and baptized at St. Nicholas on the 31st May 1826, the son of Richard Barrett & Sarah Harris, he later migrated to Australia with his wife, Emma Bradford.

I have consulted the monumental inscriptions document for St. Nicholas' Churchyard, and have discovered that many of my ancestors from this parish do have monuments on their graves.
Would it be possible for me to obtain images of these monuments, and if so, how might I go about it?

I am looking for monuments within the churchyard dedicated to the following people, which according to the monumental inscriptions, are present within the churchyard:

Richard Barrett - died 15th May 1845 aged 47 years.
Sarah Barrett (wife of above) - died 28th May 1843 aged 47 years.

Simon Barrett - died September 1801, age unknown, possibly 60 years.
Susannah Barrett (2nd wife of above) - died 18th June 1838 aged 72 years.

Richard Blundell - died May 1803 aged 64 years.
Sarah Blundell (wife of above) - died 2nd April 1809 aged 68 years.

Any assistance or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Jim, however those are only the inscriptions, I actually got my information from that document. I'm trying to find images of the monuments themselves.

No problem, will see if I can get the three people you're after.
Frankton is a small charming village, will take a photo of the church if you want it.
The church has some good information for family researchers
