Fillongley Churchyard  
I began to photograph the headstones in Fillongley Church Yard May 2017. I have not completed photographing and will keep adding to this page as I do so.

Many of the old (and not so old) headstones are weathered and undecipherable (as photo above) and these are not included. 

The photos below are in approximate alphabetical order. Where I am able to add additional information about the person or family, I have included it. 

*If you would like to add anything about the person / family, or where they lived, please let me know.

History: an interesting fact is that Fillongley folk were generally long-lived reaching their three score and ten (and more) compared to town and city dwellers (pre 1900) and this can be put down to fresh clean spring water and local home-grown produce.
