St John's Pemberton
Thank you, Dave :o)
A special churchyard for my family and a special photograph, too.
That's a brilliant photo. You have managed to make a very unattractive church look attractive. Well done.
Nice pic!!! My great great great grandparents are buried in the churchyard (somewhere, just cant find where!!!!!)
a lot of my ancestors are buried in there going back many, many years, many big branches and many twigs of those
some sadly have not been traced due to the devastation in the old part...
It's terrible, in the old section, there are more headstones smashed or over, than there are still standing, very sad to see.
MY BROTHER AND I TRIED TO LOCATE OUR GRANDADS GRAVE A FEW YEARS AGO BUT TO NO AVAIL ! THINK IT HAS SUNK.
I to have ancestors buried in the church yard.I have grave numbers but don't hold out much hope.It's so sad to see so may gravestones damaged.
Is there a local history group that would take on refurbishing the fallen, broken headstones? My Dad's hometown is working on providing headstones for those who have none - so far they're up to 100 - just simple, inexpensive, but give the persons name & dates. Just an idea! I, too, have many family members buried there. Is the church still active?
