How you can help Holy Cross Church, Ramsbury

It costs well over £1,000 a week to keep our two churches (Axford & Ramsbury) ticking over – even with the doors currently closed due to COVID-19.
Over 80% of the income for our running costs comes from donations so if you would like to support our churches, you can do so by:
1.       Giving direct to our bank (sort code 40-52-40, Account name Ramsbury & Axford LCC, account number 00017797) either as a one-off donation or as a regular gift (there is a Standing Order form here).
2.       By on-line giving through our CAF (Charities Aid Foundation) page – click here for details (Please note that CAF payments are paid to us net of a small administration fee)
3.       By cheque made out to Ramsbury & Axford Local Church Committee and delivered to The Hon Treasurer, Ramsbury & Axford LCC, c/o The Church Office, Ramsbury Marlborough, Wiltshire SN8 2QH
4.       Contacting The Hon Treasurer by telephoning 01672 520659 or via the Church Office email: teamoffice@whittonteam.org.uk
Please do use Gift Aid if you are eligible – it adds an extra 25% to your gift at no cost to you.  There is a Gift Aid form here.
All gifts, small and large, are very much appreciated.  Thank you.

Ramsbury Graveyard Memorial Details

The recording of the information of the nearly 1900 memorials in the village churchyard has been collected by Ronny Price over the last 40 years. This includes both the Old and New Churchyards and both burial and cremation memorials.
There is also now an alphabetical paper register produced by Jane Handford which is inside the church (in the Darrell chapel) for visitors to locate a memorial.
This information from Jane’s careful data entry is now also on the Ramsbury web page of findagrave.com. This is searchable by name or surname.
Included is the reference to a site number, the approximate position of which can be found from a summary map, which is also on the web page.
