Some Memorial Inscriptions - Leek, Staffordshire
St Edward's Churchyard, St Luke's Churchyard & Leek Cemetery

Note: This page lists all available head-stones in St Luke's Churchyard [Section 'C']. It appears the Churchyard was cleared - anyone who died before 1855 or after 1862, and was buried there has no chance of a stone.

A selection of inscriptions from St Edward's Churchyard (below) have been contributed by Derek Scragg. Derek has collected a large number of MIs from Stoke-on-Trent and surrounds, and his most up-to-date transcriptions, with maps and photographs can be found on his site of North Staffordshire Headstone Inscriptions.

Latest Additions New 21st May 2009 [collected 27 Dec 2008]
