Monumental Inscriptions of St Werburgh Church, Hoo - recorded by D. E. Williams August 2011

Introduction

This large 13th to 15th century church has a tall shingled spire, which is a conspicuous landmark, now over shadowed by the over scale chimney of Kingsnorth Power Station. The church contains a good selection of brasses from the 15th to the 17th centuries, that of Richard Bayley, one of the finest in England.
   The churchyard contains a good variety of headstones and one very large pedestal tomb, designed to demand attention! ( Everist Family).
   There is a modern extension to the north, which I have included but have only transcribed pre-1930 graves. There are also some very modern burials at the east end of the churchyard, and some cremation interments on the south side of the church; I have excluded these.

Section A   is a small area north of the church between the porch and the east end of the chancel.

Section B   is all that area east of the church and south of the east west footpath.

Section C   is the area south of the church.

Section D  is the area west of the church, bounded on the west by the footpath which leads to the
                            south west corner.
Section E  is west of the above footpath, bounded by the north and west boundaries of the churchyard.

Section F  is a modern extension, (1920's), north of the east west footpath, and east of the library building.

Section G  interior of Church
