Monumental Inscriptions - Castle Street Chapel, Aylesbury


Robert Gibbs, in his book "A History of Aylesbury with its Borough and Hundreds, the Hamlet of Walton and the Electoral Divisions", 1885, describes the mural tablets to be found in the chapel.

"The burial ground is the final resting place of many of Aylesbury Nonconformists of the last generation. It was used for internments until the Act came into operation enforcing burials in the New Cemetary. In the ground are erected memorials to the following:-

[The head of the family is placed first in this copy of the memorials for the purpose of showing the relationships to others, which is explained by the letters - w., wife;  s., son;  d., daughter;  g. c., grand child;  s. w., son's wife; b. brother;  n., niece;  m., mother;  b. l., brother-in-law. Several of these memorials, although comparitively modern, are in so neglected a state that the inscriptions on them are not legible. They are not given in full.]
