Some Memorial Inscriptions - Hackenthorpe, Derbyshire
Christ Church Churchyard

The following MIs were kindly contributed by Anne Paling Lawson, 15th January 2005. Entries supply name, date of death, and age. You may also wish to be aware that:-
  • Recent inscriptions have been omitted;
  • Monumental Masons' names are enclosed in square brackets as an aid to separation from the main inscription;
  • 'Intake' is the name of a district in Sheffield. One takes the name for granted when living within its environs, but it seems to cause great amusement to those meeting it for the first time, and taking the name literally! They go in there, but they never come back...
