St. James, Thorpe Thewles Church Yard Survey

During 2009 and 2010 members of Thorpe Thewles History Group undertook a survey to record the grave stones/markers in St. James Churchyard, Thorpe Thewles. A summary list of those names recorded from this survey are presented below. It should be noted that this is just a summary list taken from a much more comprehensive searchable data base which records the following additional information for each burial marker and which also cross references each marker with the entry details as recorded in Grindon's parish burial register;

Additional lists of memorials within St. James Church

St. James Church is the third documented church to serve the Parish of Grindon. In July 1848 the Rev. William Cassidi laid the foundation stone of a new parish church in a field at the north-eastern entrance to the village of Thorpe Thewles. This new church, which was dedicated to The Holy Trinity, replaced the early medieval parish church of St. Thomas a Becket that was located in the hamlet of Grindon. Unfortunately Holy Trinity Church had been constructed of poor quality stone and as a result was very damp and cold. Its design was also considered to be cramped and the windows poorly glazed. Such was its state that a major re-building of the church took place in the late 1880s.  In 1887 the re-built structure was re-consecrated as St. James Church.

It should be noted that even after the movement of the parish church to its new site in Thorpe Thewles in 1848, the old parish graveyard at St. Thomas a Becket's Church, Grindon, continued to be used for some burials for several years after.
