Burial registers from other parishes


I’ve added pages for Usk & Glascoed and Monkswood parish churches elsewhere. This page covers burial registers that I have abstracted from other churches.


My Great-Great Grandmother, Sarah Pitt (nee Davies) was at the centre of a scandal that the local newspapers termed “Suspicion of infanticide” in their reporting. In 1868, she gave birth to a child who died after a few hours. In order to save money on graveyard fees, late at night the father of the child, James Williams, buried the body secretly. The inquest brought this apparently not uncommon rural practice to light - so it may be that there are more bodies buried in churchyards than these registers would indicate!


Many thanks to Mike John for allowing me to abstract and share this information from these burial registers.
