Saint Mary and the Holy Rood Churchyard
Donington, Lincolnshire County, England

Church Street, Donington, Lincolnshire, PE11 4AU

The village is on the A52 ten miles southwest of Boston. You turn off the A52 directly onto Church Street. The churchyard runs round all four sides of the church. These areas are tended and the graves easy to reach. Many have suffered from weathering.

The churchyard was expanded in 1865. This area is behind the church on the right hand side and has been left to go wild. Nettles are at waist height and there are lots of them. It is difficult to both see and access the graves during the spring and summer. This area is best visited in the winter when the growth has died back. A cemetery was opened in 1900, so the churchyard is no longer used for burials since that time.

This is not a complete listing of all of the burials in this cemetery! The records below were provided by contributors to Interment.net. Last edited Jul 11, 2008. Total records = 163.

    A free online library of cemetery records from thousands of cemeteries across the world, for historical and genealogy research.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
