Churchyards and cemeteries
One of my first research activities was to head for the two cemeteries in Amble on a mission to track down the Turner family plot to check some information for my cousin and to see if I could find the Henderson graves that my Granny Webb used to take me to on her weekly flower visit. I amazed myself by being able to head almost directly to the Henderson graves even though it must be over 40 years since I went with my granny.
Both visits surprised me by turning up a lot more information than I expected and bringing many old memories of family and townspeople back to the surface. Since then I have visited more cemetries and have some interesting monumental photos from:
- Amble West Cemetery
- Amble East Cemetery
- St. John’s church at Broomhill
- Chevington Cemetery
- St. Lawrence’s Church at Warkworth
- St. Paul’s Church at Choppington
- Lowick Church
Plan to start publishing some of the photos that have helped my research in the Christmas hols.
Others that I need information from include:
- Kyloe Church – privately owned, by appointment only
- Norham Church – figured out where it is but did not have time
My collection of war memorial photos so far includes:
- Radcliffe (at Amble)
