Holy Rood Churchyard
Shilton, Oxfordshire, England

Holy Rood Churchyard is on Church Lane, in Shilton. The village is just off the B4020. It is clearly sign-posted. The church sits at the top of the hill, so can easily be seen.

The parish was once part of Berkshire, but became part of Oxfordshire in the nineteenth century. The churchyard is well maintained. It is still used for burials.

Parish records date from the 1660s and are held at Oxfordshire archives in Cowley, though the church has copies of the records dating from 1820 onwards. The records show the date of burial, not the date of death. All parish record entries have been labelled with (PR). Unlabelled entries are recorded from the gravestones.

    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.
