There are 2 sets of numbers for Moneydig- new numbers in red, old ones in [brackets]. These are ALL the plots with Boyd as graveholder but there are, of course, Boyds buried in other plots-
#123 John Boyd (Mayoughill) [plot 145]
#164 John Boyd (Culnaman, later James Boyd, Killyvalley) [plot 102]
#165 James Boyd (Moneydig)- unmarked [plot 103]
#184 Robert Boyd- unmarked (Culnaman) [plot 78]
#185 John Boyd (Culnaman)- unmarked [plot 77]
#309 James Boyd- "In memory of John Boyd who died 26th Sept.1896 aged 72 years." [plot 248]
#310 William Boyd (Culnaman)- headstone face down [plot 247]
#323 John Boyde (Culnaman) [plot 252]

Added- there is only ONE burying ground for Moneydig Presbyterian Church

I'm not sure exactly what your are asking but Moneydig, like most other local churches except Church of Ireland, did not keep a burial register so the only burial details are from headstones and plot maps.
I do have lots more information on various Boyds connected to Moneydig and other churches in the area which is not available online but since you've once again not bothered to say 'thank you' for information posted then I'll not be posting on this thread further.

I do know when to say thank you. You just give a person a chance.

Ha ha and the poster still has not said thank you!

Thank you Aghadowey for your wide knowledge of the L/Derry area and its families and your willingness to share this to help others in the search for their ancestors. 

PS OP your best chance would have been in post2!
