Monumental Inscriptions of Strood Cemetery, Cuxton Rd, Rochester ME2 2NJ
                                                                                  
 - recorded by D. E. Williams 2009

Introduction

Strood is a part of the City of Rochester, and is situated on the River Medway in North Kent. Strood Cemetery lies on high ground about ¾ of a mile south of the town centre.
   The original 6 acres of the cemetery was opened in early 1883, replacing the burial ground around the old parish church of St. Nicholas in the centre of Strood. An additional 3 acres was added in 1929/30.
   This record contains all the monumental inscriptions for graves established between 1883-1929. Additionally, the transcriber found 5 monuments from the old church in the cemetery.
   The sections are the official cemetery sections. A map of the cemetery, showing the sections
   The burial registers are held at the Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre, at the time of writing, situated in Strood; the centre also has local newspapers on microfilm, which contain obituaries and inquests relating to many of the people buried in the cemetery.
   Strood Cemetery is very well positioned, with panoramic views east across the River Medway to Rochester and beyond. It is very well maintained, although some individual monuments in the 1883 section were overgrown with ivy and other climbers, this has now been removed.
   The western edge of the 1883 cemetery is marked by a line of Scots’ Pines. Presumably a brick boundary wall originally ran parallel to the trees. Beyond the pines lies the 1930 extension. The boundary between Sections E and D is not clear, so the exact location of some monuments may not be strictly accurate; similarly, there is no obvious boundary between Sections H, J and K, so these are treated as one section. Sections L and N, to the north of the Non-Conformist Chapel, are non-conformist, including Roman Catholic. The largest monuments are in Section H, J and K, although they do not compare in scale with some of those in St. Nicholas Cemetery, in the neighbouring City of Rochester. Unfortunately a small number of headstones remain face down and unrecorded, due, in part, to an injury to the transcriber.

The M.I.s are listed in two parts, the first covers the years 1883 (the year the cemetery opened) to 1913 and the second 1914 to 1929.

SAD DROWNING CASE IN THE MEDWAY  -   Kent Messenger,7th July 1894
An accident of a most distressing nature occurred on Friday evening in the Medway. Four young men, named Arthur Anderson, Ernest Sutton, George Cheetham and George Frederick Silver, upon leaving off work at Messrs. Aveling and Porter’s engineering factory, proceeded to Wickham Point to bathe. This spot, it appears is exceedingly dangerous to bathers. Anderson suddenly got out of his depth. Silver hastened to his assistance, but he, too, was dragged into deep water, and then Cheetham swam out and made a most determined and plucky attempt to save them from drowning. He was pulled under, and nearly lost his own life.
   A boat containing three young gentlemen, --- Messrs. East J. Rolfe, C. K. Spencer, and A.G. Fremlin, members of the Medway Rowing Club --- happened to be passing, and rowed to the spot. Spencer and Fremlin, with commendable promptness, dived into the water with the idea of saving the lives of the two young men who had disappeared. Their attempts, however, were unsuccessful. Rolfe then entered the water, and on diving down succeeded in rescuing Anderson; but failed to recover the body of Silver. Sutton, immediately he saw that his companions were in danger, jumped into the river, without waiting to remove his clothes, and did his best to reach them.
   Anderson was quite unconscious when taken ashore. Mr. Spencer, with the assistance of others adopted the usual methods for resuscitating life, and succeeded in restoring animation. On Saturday he had sufficiently recovered to leave his bed.
   The body of the unfortunate young man Silver was recovered five hours later, and conveyed to the city mortuary. Anderson is a married man, with two children.
INQUEST
  An inquest was held by Mr. Bell, at the Guildhall, on Saturday, when the statements above were corroborated by George Silver, George Cheetham, Mr. Henry John Rolfe, a student at Messrs. Arkcoll’s brewery, and John Hughes, a shipwright, who failed in finding the body with grappling irons and boat hooks, but succeeded in doing so when the tide ebbed.--- The jury returned a verdict of "death from misadventure", and the foreman remarked that the jury unanimously wished to commend the courageous conduct of the witness Rolfe. – We understand that the Mayor of Rochester and Superintendent Broadbridge are moving to secure the Royal Humane Society’s medal for Mr. Rolfe’ They will also place the names of others who attempted to save life before the society.

STROOD WOMAN FATALLY BURNED   -   Chatham Observer, March 13th 1896
The City Coroner, Mr. West H. Bell, held an inquest at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, on Tuesday morning, on the body of Ellen Godfrey, Who was admitted to the hospital on February 26th suffering from severe burns.— Mr. J. T. Ogden was chosen foreman of the jury. Thomas Edward Godfrey, of 6, Newark Street, Strood, said the deceased was his wife, and she was 24 years of age. He was away from home when the accident occurred, his wife being in the hospital when he returned.
   She told him she was sitting over the fire in the living room and dozed off to sleep, and was awoke by her clothes being in flames. She could not account for her clothes catching fire. He felt sure she was sober; she was not in the habit of drinking much.
   John Hills, fisherman, of 4, Newark Street, said he was awoke early on the morning of the 26th February by his wife, and he then heard screams. He opened the door, and saw the deceased lying on the ground in the yard in flames. He put the flames out with water, and a constable removed her to the hospital. He afterwards went and put out the fire at deceased’s house, the hearthrug and canvas being in flames.
   P.C. Welch, who was attracted to the house by hearing the screams, said he finished putting out the flames by wrapping his cape around the deceased. He carried her to Dr. Packman, and after he had dressed the wounds brought her to the hospital in a cab.
   Dr. Ludford Cooper, house surgeon at the hospital, said when admitted deceased was suffering from extensive and serious burns on the legs, trunk and arms. She died on Monday morning from exhaustion, the result of the burns.
   The witness Hills, recalled, said it appeared to him that the chimney had caught fire, as burning soot kept falling into the room.
   The jury returned a verdict of "Death by misadventure".

FATAL BOATING DISASTER AT GILLINGHAM   -   Chatham Observer, May 5th 1900
On Wednesday three shop assistants hired a boat at the Sun Pier and went for a row down the river. Off Gillingham they got into the swell caused by the Government tug Buster, and, failing to keep their boat head on to it, the craft was overturned. One of the occupants, Baitup, could not swim, and he sank "like a stone" , his companions having no opportunity of affording him assistance. Deceased was 18 years old and belonged to Tonbridge, having come to Rochester only a few weeks since, and was an only son.

LAD DROWNED WHILST BATHING
   A sad bathing fatality occurred in the River Medway, off Wickham, on Sunday morning, a lad named Alfred Baker, aged 17, a horse driver at the factory, being drowned. The body was recovered later in the day, and conveyed to the mortuary to await an inquest.
   The inquest was held before Mr. West J. Harris (County Coroner), and a jury composed entirely of Wickham workmen, in the chapel of Strood cemetery on Monday evening, Mr. W. H. Pounds being foreman of the jury.
   Alfred Baker, father of the deceased, said the deceased lived with him at 81, Cuxton Road, Strood. He last saw him alive at 9.30 o’clock on Sunday morning, when he left home to go and feed his horses.
   Robert Stevens, of 29, Gun-lane, Strood said he worked with the deceased. On Sunday morning, about 11.30 o’clock, the deceased with George Kidney and witness, went down to the river near Wickham Factory. Deceased said he should go into the water for a swim, and asked witness and Kidney to accompany him. They refused, as it was too cold, and only deceased could swim out of the three. Deceased stripped and plunged into the water. He swam out towards the middle of the stream and threw his arms up and said "That is the depth". The water was then up to his neck. Deceased then swam out from seven to eight yards further, when he cried for help and sank.
   Witness waded into the water to look for him., but could not see him. He called a boat, but it came too late. Deceased never rose after once disappearing beneath the surface.
   The Coroner: I can’t see what he could be thinking of to go into the water, especially after the weather we have experienced lately.
   Witness: He was headstrong to go in, sir.
   The Coroner: Yes, and you see he has had to pay the penalty.
   P. Corpl. Peacock, stationed at Cuxton, said on receiving information on Sunday afternoon, he went to the spot described by the last witness, and found that the body had just been got onto the foreshore. He conveyed it to the mortuary at the Cemetery. There were no marks of violence on the body. It was quite stiff.
   The father of the deceased, in reply to the Coroner, said he was quite satisfied the affair was a pure accident.
   Alfred Ware said he found the body 200 yards from where it disappeared.
   A verdict of "Death by Misadventure" was returned.

FATAL FALL FROM THE TOWER OF ROCHESTER CASTLE 
Maidstone
Journal, 6th May 1893
   On Tuesday afternoon, a sad accident happened to a little boy named William Alfred Boswell, aged eight, at Rochester Castle. It appears he had climbed to the top of the old tower, above the main entrance from the esplanade, and in reaching over to obtain some wild flowers, over balanced himself and fell upon the row of spikes below. One of them entered his neck, and others pierced other parts of the body. The Rev. Groves, Vicar of Cliff, happened to see the accident, and was one of the first to render assistance. The poor little fellow was at once taken to the Bridge Chamber and attended by Dr. Atkin, but his injuries produced death in a very short time. His body was conveyed on a stretcher to his home in Taylor’s Lane.
THE INQUEST
   An inquest was held at Strood Hall, on Thursday, when the Rev. P. Groves, rector of Cliffe, stated that as he was passing down the hill towards Rochester Bridge, he saw the deceased slip and fall over, and he became impaled on an iron fence. The poor little fellow remained in this position, with his hands hanging loosely over the fence, until witness and a man named Selling, caretaker of the Bridge Chamber, lifted him off. Blood poured from the wounds as the deceased was being carried into the chambers. – Alfred Selling and Dr. Atkin also gave evidence. – The jury returned a verdict of "Death through misadventure".

The Times, 4th January 1904
On Saturday afternoon, whilst a large number of persons were skating on a piece of water at Derby, known locally as the Dead Waters, the ice suddenly broke, and a young lady named Rose Selwood fell in.
   Others went to her rescue, when the ice further gave way, with the result that altogether seven persons were immersed. The water at the spot was very deep. Two swam to the bank, and one of them, with a rope fastened around his waist, returned with the object of saving Miss Selwood. In this he failed, and was dragged to the side in an exhausted condition. Miss Selwood and two men were then got out in a state of unconsciousness, and artificial means of respiration were applied. These were successful in the case of the men, who were able to go home, but Miss Selwood was beyond human aid, Three-quarters of an hour later the dead bodies of Frederick George Patterson, aged 30, and Sidney Saunders, aged 20, were recovered, and, together with the body of Miss Selwood, were removed to the public mortuary to await an inquest. Patterson was a moulder employed at a Derby foundry, whose friends reside at Strood, Rochester….

A BARGEMAN DROWNED   -   Kent Messenger, 10th March 1888
Mr. West H. Bell coroner for Rochester, on Thursday afternoon held an inquest at the Guildhall, on the body of a young bargeman named Frederick William Wicker, who was drowned on the previous day. It appears that deceased was mate of Messrs. Peters’ barge "John", of which his brother, Thos. Wicker its master. The barge was tacking down the river between Burham and Wouldham about five o’clock on Wednesday evening, and apparently deceased was caught by the main sail and knocked overboard. He disappeared at once, and life was extinct when his body was recovered. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death"
