Norham Memorial Inscriptions

Index to the Memorial Inscriptions for St. Cuthbert's Church, Norham, Northumberland

This site contains the complete transcriptions of the legible Memorial Inscriptions found in the church-yard of St. Cuthbert's Church, Norham-upon-Tweed, Northumberland. Many of the older headstones were made from soft red sandstone which has weathered badly over the years, so very few inscriptions from before the 19th century were legible and the number of headstones which are legible reduces every year.

There are 540 surnames in the index. If a surname is on a particular page, read the complete page as the same surname may appear on several adjacent stones as whole families are buried close together in many instances.

Please note that these pages are scanned copies of reduced photo-copies of the original typewritten originals. The copies I have were given to me by a past incumbent of St. Cuthbert's and were not of a good enough quality to read with an Optical Character Reader, therefore anyone requiring extracts will have to type up copies from the screen - I have done the best I can to ensure clarity.

A map of the graveyard is included.
