INSTOW CHURCHYARD MEMORIALS IN NEED OF REPAIR – IS ONE OF THESE YOURS?
Quite a few of the gravestones in St John Instow upper yard have been found to be unsafe. To keep vistors safe action needs to be taken and unless we hear from families the stones will have to be laid down. This has cost the church over £800 so far.
We are most anxious to find any kith and kin, so if you are able to carry out a repair, or if you know someone in the district whom the PCC could get in touch with, please get in touch (01271 861165). Headstones at risk have the following names:
Agnew, Burnett, Cotterill, Culverwell, Dudley, Ford, Harding, Holbeche, Holland, Isaac, Lamey, Morton, Mugridge, Rawlinson, Rawstron, Richardson, Roger, Seyfert, Stockwell, Tomlin, Beer, Cramp, Orton, Rawstron, Spencer, Tythcott, and Woolaway
If no action is taken regarding we are obliged to lay them down in November 2023 which will cause upset to all affected.
Thank you in anticipation.
