Churchyard Information and Search

The church and churchyard date from 1845. There have been over 650 burials. The commonest village surnames are Dando, Cook, Tovey, Newman & Dutfield.

St Saviour's is the ecclesiastical Parish of Coalpit Heath constituted in 1845 for the pastoral care of colliers whose lengthy working hours made it difficult for them to attend St Peter's Church situated on other side of the hill. A high proportion of Frampton Cotterell Civil Parish is encompassed within newer Coalpit Heath so look for many village ancestors here. The original Victorian graveyard was filled within 85 years, then an extension was dedicated in December 1922 where the burials have proceeded in orderly rows. The Garden of Remembrance is located just by the Lych Gate entrance. The War Memorial cross is central within the extension and is inscribed with more deaths for 2nd World War than the Great War, which is unusual. This churchyard is immaculate with its trimmed grass and maintained trees. The graveyard was surveyed having each tombstone meticulously drawn and numbered for easier location. Maureen Thompson (registrar) and Graham Hayter have compiled full records with precise dates and inscriptions for individual graves. Please note that this is simply a record of the visible graves.

We have photographed and transcribed most of the gravestones and the old registers (Baptism, Confirmation, Bann, Marriage, Burial and Service Registers). Details of the gravestone inscriptions can be found below, but if you would like to search for information in the registers or need any other assistance please contact Andy. There is a standard charge of £19 per register search.
