St Michael’s Churchyard Heritage Project

The St Michael’s Churchyard Heritage Project, carried out in 2017 and 2018, has sought to record, as far as possible, the inscriptions on each visible gravestone, building on key details captured in the Wiltshire Family History Society survey carried out in the early 1980s, and the information in St Michael’s Churchyard Burials file, located in the church.

Thanks to the efforts of project volunteers, we now have a comprehensive digital record of burial plot information dating back to the second half of the nineteenth century, including plots for which there are no headstones, as well as photos of each gravestone (from 1677), with full inscriptions, to the extent that these are legible. This digital record is available through the Aldbourne Community Heritage Group website, at http://aldbourneheritage.org.uk/village-history/aldbourne-monuments-digital-record A book is available for reference in the church that looks at, among other things, various aspects of the project, the history of the churchyard, interesting features of some of the stones and the people that they remember.
