Saint John the Baptist Churchyard
Devizes, Wiltshire, England

Long Street, Devizes, UK

Contributod by Jo Clinton, Apr 03, 2007, last edited Apr 18, 2007 [jo_clinton@hotmail.co.uk]. Total records = 195.

Keeping the Market Square in the centre of Devizes on your left hand side, Saint John the Baptist Cemetery is 200 yards further down Long Street on the right hand side.

The Churchyard surrounds the 12th Century Saint John the Baptist Church and is overlooked by the Devizes castle.

The churchyard is very old and many of the headstones are too ancient and weathered to read. The church and churchyard belong to the Church of England.

Becky Adams and I read and transcribed all existing and readable headstones from our visit on Mar 28, 2007.
