                                   Plan (84KB) of location of gravestones in Meopham Churchyard
INTRODUCTION
The Monumental Inscriptions of St. John’s, Meopham, were first recorded in the ‘Church Monthly’ of July 1898 by the vicar, the Rev. L.W. Lewis. This list included names and years of burial and the location was indicated by the relevant compass point relating to the church. It was later incorporated in C.H. Golding-Bird’s ‘History of Meopham’ in 1934. These entries provide a most useful source of comparison with ours of a century later. Some 20 names of individuals, all buried before 1898, have been revealed in our own recordings but, curiously, are missing from the original list. These are mainly 18th century gravestones on the south side of the church. On the other hand there are over 50 individuals recorded by L.W. Lewis which we have been unable to trace. More than half of these are listed as north of the church and may now lie beneath the tarmacced paths. Others are recorded as west of the church and on the verge of the widened A227. For the benefit of researchers these names are listed alphabetically with their original locations in the appendix. Lewis spoke hopefully of a possible map of the churchyard but none appeared. A later attempt to record the tombstones was made in 1972 by Mr. H.W. Davies and lodged at the Centre for Kentish Studies in 1975 (Ref. TR 1893/1). Four documents were submitted, containing 70 individual inscriptions, but it is a far from complete survey and no accompanying plan appears to exist. However, a comparison with our survey reveals four inscriptions of which we had no trace. Details of these are also in the appendix.

Our survey was undertaken by eight volunteers from the Meopham Historical Society and has taken three years to bring to completion. The churchyard was divided into 11 sections, each with its own plotted map, and each has been indexed both alphabetically and by location. Two similar general indexes and a plan of the whole churchyard are included. (not included in this webpage)  In cases where the same surname occurs more than once the entries are chronologically listed. Similar indexes with a plan are included for the memorials in the church itself. Original spellings, punctuation and spaces for illegible letters have been strictly adhered to and slashes indicate the division of lines in the inscriptions. Where doubts have arisen about the dates Burial Registers, Bishop’s Transcripts and Golding-Bird have been consulted; hence occasional italicised abbreviations, such as BR, BT, GB with alternative solutions. 266 gravestones survive and 510 individuals have been identified. The earliest surviving inscription is that of Richard Masters of Camer, 1689. The Old Churchyard was officially closed in 1923 and later burials (not included in this survey) are in the new graveyard on the west side of the A227.
