Some Memorial Inscriptions - Ashleworth, Gloucestershire
St Andrew's Churchyard

Note: this church was again flooded in July 2007, and the complete interior was bereaved of fixtures and fittings, and it was in the process of being dried out by blow heaters when I (Alf) visited later in the year. There were many stones to the south of the church which were inaccessible due to the aftermath of the flooding.
