List of Graves cleared from St Peters churchyard, Mansfield, Notts

The Mansfield Corporation Act (1901) empowered the local council to acquire a portion of the churchyard attached to the parish church of St Peter, in order to widen Church Lane.

The Mansfield Chronicle, dated Friday June 9th 1905, listed 136 graves where the bodies were to be exhumed and reinterred at an unspecified consecrated site along with any surviving monument or gravestone. The Act also stated that if any person who was an heir, executor, administrator or relative of the deceased could, under certain conditions, have the deceased reinterred in consecrated ground of their choosing. The sum of ten pounds was to be paid by the Corporation to help alleviate expenses.

It appears that the gravestones were used to identify the bodies, as there were many graves recorded as "All lettering completely gone on this stone" or "Headstone broken off below inscription". In those cases we must assume that the bodies were reinterred anonymously. The names of those which were identified are indexed below.

Note: Following correspondence with Mansfield Crematorium, which keeps the records for the Cemetery, it appears that they have no records of any bodies being re-interred in the Cemetery in 1905. The final resting place for these remains is currently being investigated. (22/7/1999)
