Gravestones Project

Gravestones Project

 

In 2014 and 2015, with funding from Thornbury Parish Council and the Torridge Town and Parish Fund, a group of volunteers recorded and photographed all of the graveyard and other inscriptions in Thornbury Church, Woodacott Chapel, and the War Memorial. The results of this project were recorded as a set of hardback albums for the Hamlets, a DVD containing all of the material, which is reproduced here.
