Memorial inscriptions Old Swinford
« on: Friday 11 August 17 19:53 BST (UK) »
Hi there, does anyone have access to the memorial inscriptions for st marys in old swinford? I understand you may have to pay to have access to these, but if someone would be willing to check for William Brookes who was buried there in 1820, i would be very grateful!

Hi Tom

Found one, I think, though one of the sites say he was buried at St James Harvington

Deleted the memorial - have just found the St Mary Burial on another site.

One of the main sites has an Old Swinford St Mary MI list of names, are you sure there is a surviving headstone as he isn't on there ?

Hi Tom,

I have the Old Swinford Monumental Inscriptions for St. Mary. I just had a look and can't see anything for a William Brookes who died in 1820 nor a Phoebe.

Hi, I am interested in an MI for Thomas Foley of Witley, which is referenced in a transcription on FindMyPast. According to this he died in 1676, but he is generally thought to have died on 1 Oct 1677.
Can anyone help with the wording of Thomas Foley's MI please?
Thank you, Don Lloyd
