Scopwick Church Burial Ground
Scopwick, Lincolnshire County, England

Vicarage Lane, Scopwick, Lincolnshire Eng

Submitted by Shelley Clack, Sep 04, 2006, last edited Sep 16, 2009 [sclack@tiscali.co.uk]. Total records = 208.

Scopwick Church Burial Ground is located in Vicarage Lane in Scopwick, Lincolnshire.

The signs at the cemetery lead people to believe the whole site was called 'Scopwick War Graves Cemetery.' This is probably because th war graves section is near the entrance.

The cemetery is split into two sections, with the war graves located near the entrance, with the top section used for general burials. The war graves are primarily burials from World War two.

This cemetery is maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. They list it as 'Scopwick Church Burial Ground', but locally it is known and sign posted as, 'Scopwick War Graves Cemetery'. 

I have transcribed this transcription from all visible tombstone inscriptions, completing it on Aug 29, 2006.
