MILLBROOK CHURCHYARD SURVEY 2020

Two old views of Millbrook Cemetery with the 'old' church, demolished late 19th century which was later 'replaced' by 'All Saints' Church in Newport Street.




New Chapel of Ease, Millbrook (Foundation stone 1904)










Carried out in collaboration with Millbrook Churchyard Group and with the support of Millbrook Parish Council

WORK IS IN PROGRESS AND CONTENT WILL BE POSTED 'AS AND WHEN' AVAILABLE (OCT 2020)

The project would have been impossible without the support of CORMAC (who cut the grass and maintain the vegetation) to the many 'Churchyard Group' members who raked, cleared and tended the area (names)and to those photographers who prepared the gravestones, recorded ther details and photographed the stones and their inscriptions (thank you Helen, Manuel, Marine, Apha, Pauline, Vix, Tina, more names to be added in due course......)

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP PLEASE CONTACT: info@ramehistorygroup.org.uk


HOW WE DID IT: The 'old' Graveyard is maintained by CORMAC (Cornwall Council's maintenance Service), who cut the grass and paths and bi-annually cut back the graves and surrounds. Over the last twelve months (Vix words please on the natural meadow intiative please??)

From the aerial photograph above, the graveyard was divided into plots which were allocated to individuals or pairs who cleared, recorded and photographed the inscriptions.


WORK IN PROGRESS so far we have plots 1a, 1b, 1c 1d, 1e, 1f, 2 3 4 8 9 10 14 & 15 recorded See below

MILITARY GRAVES there are 12 officially recognised graves in this cemetery (and other war commemorations). As our studies progress we are revealing inscriptions of 'in memoriam' for the war dead, which we shall 'add' in due course to this section

The Commonwealth Graves Commission honour and care for the 1.7 million men and women of the
Commonwealth forces who died in the First and Second World Wars, ensuring they will never be forgotten.
Within the Millbrook Graveyard there are 12 graves
