To assist people looking for family or genealogical research,
(who often contact the webmaster), a large number of St Editha's
gravestone and tomb pictures have been put on line.
This is part of an attempt to record and classify them
for the benefit of current and future generations.
If you can help decipher some of the more difficult ones
please contact
The ones on line are not yet edited or classified,
but are easier to search than crawling around the churchyard.
To access the pictures of the rear churchyard

Visitors to the village or to this web site;
please comment on the "Visitors" topic of the Blog
How to use the BLOG

Sadly, idiot spammers have attacked our Village Blog
and put inappropriate material on it,
so now I have to try to filter the content
before it can be displayed. This will result
in delays in seeing your genuine contributions,
but I think that is better than exposing
villagers of all ages to offensive postings. Sorry! John.

Local History Club
The Village history web site gives details
of their activities. Passwords are issued to club members.

We have not met for some time,
as all the work seems to fall on the same shoulders.

Ian Hennwinkle continues to provide local finds
that give a picture of past residents of our parish.
If you would like to revive the club and help delve into the past
and present of Church Eaton, please call 823O67.
