The graveyard of Sion Baptist Church as of July 2014.

The old chapel was converted into sheltered housing in 1986 and many of the stones moved to the edge of the graveyard or grassed over. I have not attempted to remove moss or expose buried inscriptions. It is also possible that some stones were damaged or lost during relocation.

The graveyard is closed to burials. However from time to time small plaques commemorating residents or members of the church are sited.

The map is self-drawn, starting west of the gate, round in front of Litchford House then down the east side of the path. It then follows the east and north walls before filling in the middle section.

The numbers on the photographs correspond to those on the map. Pictures are in alphabetical order of first named or index person. The hover box contains a transcript of the inscritpion; data ‘as transcribed’ can be accessed here or via the sidebar on the left. The sidebar also contains an alphabetical abstract of individuals, an abstract by gravestone and a timeline indicating when individuals were alive.

Modern pictures of the graveyard are in the ‘Sion - modern pictures’ album

The tomb behind Patrick Crescent is included at the end of the album. The detailed photograph is courtesy of Chris Lord/RHDA = many thanks.
