Laghy Graveyard headstone inscriptions

 

INSCRIPTIONS FROM THE HEADSTONES IN LAGHY GRAVEYARD.

 

1866 - 2000

By Margaret Graham

 

Laghy church was built in 1836/7 as a Chapel of Ease for Drumholm Parish. Some years later it became a parish in its own right.

The graveyard more or less surrounds the church, with the exception of a tarmaced area giving access to the hall and carpark. The majority of the graves are at the front and sides. A new area to the right of the church was consecrated some years ago. There have been several new graves opened there recently.

The graveyard is not old as graveyards go; the earliest headstone dates from 1866. There was once a stable there, belonging to the coach house inn across the road.  The original gates and railings were very large and heavy;

The graves run on each side of the pathway to the church, all of the plots closest to the gates and front wall are now taken and plots close to the church and new area are now available to the parishioners. Sharleen Harron assisted me and we spent a very pleasant afternoon copying everything into a couple of notebooks.
