Not far from my home is a gate into the lower, newer part of the churchyard. I walked round with my camera (not yesterday, which was too HOT to go wandering anywhere!) Mostly it's overgrown with long grass.
The most recent burials
These two below mark the graves of two of my distant relatives from long ago. One, the same name as my grandad died in the year my Grandad was born so two or three generations earlier?
A monument for a family called Hendry with names from 1922 right up to the 2000's
These 5 below are all from one family, with daughters dying in their teens and twenties. They have a familiar surname but as far as we know not relations, as Col's Dad's family came from Yorkshire.
Below is a monument remembering the members of the 34th American Airmen stationed on the airfield not far away during the latter years of the WWII. This monument was once closer to the airfield but right beside a main road where no one could visit. It was moved across to the church sometime in the last few years
and it turns out to be the grave of a Minister of the United Reformed Church who died in 2003.
And finally a 22 year old who died in the Military Hospital in Felixstowe in 1918
