List of gravestones in Mansfield Woodhouse churchyard at 1800

The following list is a record of the gravestones and other monuments which existed in St Edmunds's Church, Mansfield Woodhouse and its churchyard in 1800. They were recorded in the book "A history of Mansfield and it's environs" by W. Harrod, which was published in 1801. 

I have sorted the information from the book into alphabetical order by surname, to make it easier to search. In many cases the information is limited to the name, year of death and age at death. 

I have kept the spellings as they are shown in the book. 

Comparing the entries to the ones published by the Notts FHS, some of the monuments recorded here are not included on their transcript. Likewise, there are some stones recorded by Notts FHS which were not in Harrod's book, and differences with some entries. I have not altered any of the entries below as that was how they were published - but they do need to be confirmed to other records where possible.
