A SURVEY OF ST MARY'S PARISH CHURCHYARD CLOPHILL, BEDFORDSHIRE. 1976.

Clophill Parish Churchyard was surveyed (in part) in June 1976 by members of the archaeological field team of Bedfordshire County Planning Department, under the supervision of David Baker. The work was confined to the part of the churchyard the original area and part of the eastern extension) which was later transferred, with the ruined church to the ownership of Bedfordshire County Council, for consolidation as an ancient monument. Many of the gravestones were in a poor condition as a result of serious vandalism, and were relocated round the edge of the churchyard as part of the consolidation programme. The survey was carried out using the Grave Memorial Recording Forms produced by the Council for British Archaeology; the reference numbers refer to an original plan in the possession of the church. All the original papers, photographs and Recording Forms have been deposited in Bedford & Luton Archives & Records Office.

The plan of the graveyard is shown at the bottom of this page.
