Unmarked Burials at St Mary in the Valley

From Our Contribution

The graveyard at St Mary-in-the-Valley (River Road, Kelmscott) contains a number of unmarked burials. While this has always been known, ground penetrating radar was used at the site in 2019, confirming just over 100 unmarked burials in various places around the church and cemetery.

While many of these unmarked burials remain unidentified, there may be cases where family lore states that a person was buried in the Cemetery (but for which no headstone exists and records are still being sought).

This page will list individuals believed to be buried at St Mary-in-the-Valley. Where possible, the page will link to evidence of the burial, but researchers should note that some of the names listed as burials have not yet been confirmed by written records.
