Church of England Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich Great Bradley

Graveyard Record

In the churchyard, near the chancel are some good examples of 17th-century gravestones, which have been preserved because of their sheltered position. The earliest legible gravestone in the church yard is of "Walter Derisley, Gent, who died on October AD 1681 aged 85". There are a number of skeleton graves near the south porch.


 You can also download a word file with the same information from the bottom of this page. You can see pictures of all the graves at the Gravestones Photos page and you can download indicidual records and gravestone photos from the village archive at https://greatbradley.weebly.com/village-archive.html

The information was prepared from a survey of the churchyard by Peter Smith. The original survey was carried out in 2003-2004 and the Parochial Church Council is very grateful to Peter for his dedicated work on this project. Peter's work has been buit upon in subsequent years.

If you have any information you wish to share with us then please do get in touch.

Row 11
Possible Graves; grass area partly under Cedar Tree no visible markings



141

Large headstone broken in 3 places with no visible markings; The stone pieces lie against the trunk of the large yew tree. This is a grass area mostly under the shade of a large Cedar Tree and Laurel Bushes with no visible evidence of Graves with remains of a grave/Graves Ref. 141 leaning against the trunk of the Cedar Tree Remains of Grave/Graves with no visible markings and presumably not in their original location. At the time of this note I have not been able to move the grave stone/s. This may be possible after tree surgery which is to take place in 2004.



145

The remaining area comprises uneven grass, rose bed as marked and Millennium Oak planted January 2003. In view of the location of the graves 138-145 being close to the church it is probable that other graves may exist but no records found to substantiate



149

Possible Grave; grass area no visible markings



154

Low wrought Iron railings around a grass area sufficient for 3 or 4 graves; no visible markings



157

A large number of Headstones and Foot Stones removed in the 1970’s from this area of the graveyard apparently without entering in the LOG BOOK and no record found of a Faculty. The original area they were removed from is shown on the map under ref. 158. This information was provided by the current Church Warden A W [Tony] Knight and is not claimed to be exact.[2004] Identification of markings on Headstones and Foot Stones that were moved is also being made as and the Burial Register marked up as part of this record where possible. They are stacked against an agricultural barn on the boundary of the graveyard. It is reasonable to assume that those persons recorded in the Burial Register whose graves have not been identified are buried in this and other areas of the graveyard where no Headstone/Foot Stone or visible inscription exists



158

A grass area previously of graves. Foot and Headstones except those shown on the Map have been removed, see 157above. The area could extend to the area of Graves 148-155. Presumably Grave 156 was left because it is a Tomb Grave



162

Medium dressed stone engraving mostly eroded away. No name or dates visible



165

Natural stone Head Stone with cherub wings and limited markings, no name



168A

Grave 168A was thought to have been a Foot Stone to grave 163 but is now clear that it is a very old grave in natural stone with skull and cross bones engravings at the top. The grave is covered in Lichen and when part cleaned no identifiable markings can be made. The headstone, of similar stone has markings F.C.



169

Stone Headstone; with engraved skull and cross bones no other visible markings



178

Near to the graves of Paxman Numbers 177/178 situated towards the current wild flower area lies the remains of an unnamed person not from this village who committed suicide and was buried near to the boundary hedge.[source Queenie 2004.] It is believed that the grave is that of a Josiah Nice; see note under row 11. For other members of the Nice family. [source; Church Warden Sue Ireland 2004] In this area are the unmarked graves of paupers and it is believed the grave of Isme Czikkely a stranger who was found dead under a straw stack in Water Lane by David Felton a young agricultural worker. The body had been there for some time. David is The father of Mark Felton currently living in Evergreen Lane.[source Cyril Potter].
