RAME CHURCHYARD SURVEY 2013-2017

This is the development page for the Rame Churchyard Survey 2013-17.

So far, we have uploaded 16 plots (nos.1 - 17). Plot 18 o/s.(the Church itself)

Very sincere thanks are due to our 'CHURCHYARD RECORDERS' who mapped the layout, photographed the headstones and de-cyphered the incriptions. Well done Kim, Lorraine, Nigel, Stephanie, Sue, John, Dave, Sue, Cliff, David, Roland, Tina and Roger.

If you do read this and have some comments on how to proceed, please contact info@ramehistorygroup.org.uk


Rame Churchyard Survey

For a short Introduction to Rame Church by David Parker - CLICK HERE

HOW WE STARTED the graveyard was divided into 'plots', which were numbered and allocated for recording. The overall plan looks like this:




ROUTE ONE: To Find a record - by surname

1.Click on the A - Z list below, then scroll down
the results for that letter:

All Letters, A - Z

(currently 1400 records which will increase over time)

You will now be able to identify the PLOT and BURIAL REFERENCE NUMBER (eg P12 101 (Plot 12, position101)

2. Know the
PLOT NUMBER??? Then select that number from the list below to view the plot layout:
(You will need to magnify view to read more easily)

Plots: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18


You will now be able to locate the position of the grave you seek and so find the grave in the churchyard

ROUTE TWO: To Find a record - by year of death

If you only know the
YEAR OF DEATH, click on the link below,then scroll down the year column for your grave record.

ROUTE THREE:To Find a record - by known plot

If you
DON'T KNOW the name of the deceased, but know roughly where the grave is, please follow these instructions.

1. Using the aerial plan below, identify the plot number where you believe the grave is located.

2. Click on the REQUIRED PLOT NUMBER below, this will open a plan which will show the layout of graves in that plot. Hopefully, you will now be able to see where the grave you are looking for?

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18


(ONE more plot to be added - The Church itself)

MILITARY GRAVES: a list can be found here


If you do visit the grave, please respect the sanctity of the site and the remains interred therein. (Not all grave are marked or visible) Thankyou.


Graveyard Photo Galleries:
Our volunteers recorded grave locations (Plot Plans) and inscriptions (Indexes and transcription files). They also took photgraphs of the gravestones. In some cases there were more than one image collected. For others the text could not be photographically recorded and so a small transcription file has been created. Where there is yellow colouring - a transcription file exists (see below). No Photos are included for unidentified stones (or their remains)

The photographs are organised in plots and in numerical order. If you know the plot from your search above, click on the plot number below to enter a Photo Gallery:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
