Some Memorial Inscriptions - Wotton under Edge, Gloucestershire
St Mary's Churchyard, Wotton Cemetery & Wotton under Edge Tabernacle

Note: The local council have put preservation orders on all trees but not on the graves in the Tabernacle Churchyard. Some graves have got very large trees or bushes growing out of them, in fact a few tomb/head-stones have been damaged. The Churchyard is unkept and over-gown in places. The Tabernacle building is now an Auction Room. Two years ago after a very long search I (Alf) found the location of my Great Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles all in an unmarked grave.
