St Marys

Great Bedwyn, Wiltshire

Great Bedwyn, and its little sister, little Bedwyn, lie off the main Berkshire to Wiltshire road, both near to the Kennet and Avon Canal. Great Bedwyn is a sizeable but somehow rather quiet village, with its quite large and rather nice church and its interesting graveyard. One thing struck me about the graves here is that there are a number of unusual names to be spotted, both first names and surname and I've included and commented upon some examples below

Two unusual names for the price of one here. Note the spelling: Zabulon.


Delamination has rendered this gravestone pretty well unreadable, but I can make out James Harper
