Hambledon Surrey Graveyard Project

Hambledon Surrey Graveyard Project

Screen Shot 2015-03-23 at 13.07.05In the summer of 2010 three old villagers thought it might be a good idea to research the churchyard at St Peter’s, to re-organise the written records and survey the gravestones before some of the older inscriptions became illegible or disappeared altogether. The aim was to see if family names could be researched (with the help of the internet), and perhaps linked to extant relatives who may not be aware of their antecedents’ burial places.

Two young volunteers, Alex Sehmer and Vicky Grove, took on the work, and this is a brief summary of their findings:

Background

The graveyard is split into two areas: pre and post 1906. There is a map in the vestry of the Church, but the area pre-1906 is not detailed on it and the only record (as far as we were aware) is found in documents prepared by Gay Mabley twenty-five years ago. King Edward’s School also carried out a survey in 1980 and their findings have been incorporated.

The post-1906 area map is updated as and when each plot is filled. This map correlates with the Church’s burial register.

Summary of Work Undertaken

Inscriptions and dates recorded for graves post 1980 (since KES’s project).

Compiled database of all those buried in the graveyard with (the majority of) inscriptions and salient details. The database (an excel spreadsheet) therefore incorporates both previous projects and is now an up-to-date information source.

Brief research into the bigger families and ‘interesting’ inscriptions included:

Kettle Family: 18 members in the 1800s, some moved to Brecon, Wales.

Winkworth Family: 12 members 1700/1800s, links to the March family of Great Enton.

Elliot Family: 12 members 1700s, many of whom were rectors/vicars: one was Chaplain to HRH Frederick, Prince of Wales.

Dennyer Family: 6 members, one of whom is linked to the building of navigation links between Guildford and Godalming.

Lt Col Francis Walter Finnigan MC and wife Jean Sime Finnigan MBE: Col Francis won the MC during WWII while serving in 179 Field Regiment Royal Artillery.

Conclusion

The project has successfully tidied up the burial records, and the database is available for anyone engaged in research. It was interesting to note how time-consuming it became when trying to research the genealogy of just one family, let alone 50! However, the records are now ‘alive’ and let’s hope we can keep them up to date!

The detailed survey is available as a Google Doc:Hambledon Surrey Graveyard Survey Document

  1. I am researching the Lambert family and was so pleased to find your transcription of the wording on the gravestones at Hambledon, as the stones seem to be indecipherable now. I can give you more details on the Lamberts buried here. I also came across the grave of Frank Bishop Arnold and his wife Mary. He is a most interesting character, and I am pretty sure his gravestone was from the Compton Pottery founded by Mary Seton Watts, wife of the Victorian artist G F Watts. My colleague who is writing a book on the Pottery thinks it is and wants to photograph it professionally in the spring. Again, I could send you a brief life history of Frank Arnold for your records.

    Again thanks for all your team’s hard works – I wish more churches had similar lists!

    • We would be delighted to have a copy of your brief life history of Frank Arnold. We have had several visitors to the churchyard in the last year who have asked about this grave and we would like to know more,particularly if there is a link to the Compton Pottery and Mary Seton Watts.
      Please do get in touch with our minister, Catherine McBride,or myself, Liz Cooke, Churchwarden at the Church Office in Busbridge. Tel 01483 421267

  2. I’m british/italian citizen and I live in Italy. My mother Irene Hardy was from Blackpool and my grandparents are barried in this cemetery. I found their names at no. 182 as Sidney and Ellen (for Hardy Sidney Joseph and Swift Ellen). Can you help me to find their dates of birth and death? I’d really appreciate your help. ’cause I try to find information about my family. Thank you
    David
