Monumental Inscriptions of St Peter & St Paul Church, Shorne - recorded by D. E. Williams 2013

Introduction

Interior of Church Some of these inscriptions are sourced from John Thorpe's Registrum Roffenses, published in 1769. Some of those recorded by Thorpe are now lost or hidden, e.g. by fitted carpets, etc.

Section A is all that area east of the porch to the east end of the chancel and from the church to the north churchyard wall. The numbers refer to the numbers on the plan. Dates before 1752 are under the Julian calendar, where the year changes on 25th March, so January 1725 is 1726 in the modern Gregorian calendar. Inscriptions in boxes thus: [  ] are missing in the original and have been reconstructed from the Registers or other sources. Inscriptions are arranged alphabetically.

Section B is the small triangular area, between the stone path to the porch and the grass path leading from the gate to the tower. The numbers refer to the positions on the plan.

Section C is the area from the North Churchyard wall to the southern end of the tower, bounded on the east by the grass path; on the west by the bank, below the modern extension and to the south by the hedge beyond which is the area used for cremation burials. The numbers correspond to the numbers on the plan. No.123 -139 are laying flat on the bank

Section D All the monumental in this section are east of the east end of the church. Number 146 is slightly to the north of the church. All other monument due east of the church are modern. 

Section E is the area south of the church, from the path on the east to the edge of the new area for cremation burials on the west, and south to the old churchyard boundary. The numbers refer to the position on the plan. Only monuments pre 1930 have been recorded.
