Plot Reservations

The Parish Council is trying to clear up some confusion surrounding some plots that were apparently reserved in the 1940's and 1950's, but for which there are no names or dates in the records to indicate who the plots were reserved by, or even if they are definite reservations.

If the Parish Council can establish who has reserved the plots, then they will continue to be kept available. However, if they can't identify who reserved the plots, then the Council will start allocating them, as pressure on space in the Burial Ground is high.

If you think that one of your family may have reserved a plot in the Burial Ground, or if you have any information about plot reservations, please contact the Clerk at

The Ampney Crucis Burial Ground was gifted to the village in 1888, and the first funeral there was that of Job Haines on 13th September 1888. He was 72.

There are about 500 graves, but sadly a great many of the headstones are illegible.

The Burial Ground is administered and maintained by the Parish Council and any queries relating to burial plots should be addressed to the Clerk to the Parish.

The following schedule lists all gravestones dating from 1888 up to 1950, and on which the inscriptions are still legible. By clicking on the family name you can also call up a photograph of that gravestone.

As many of the more recent deceased still have family and friends living in the village, they are not included on the list. However, for people searching for relatives, an (incomplete) list of all the family names appears at the bottom. Please use the contact page if you need further information about these.
