Great Hale Cemetery Memorial Records, as compiled by the Lincolnshire Family History Society in 1998 along with the Memorial Records for St John the Baptist Church and Churchyard in Great Hale, reproduced here by kind permission of the Society. Please note that the index at the beginning of Part 1 (Church and Churchyard) also covers Part 2 (Cemetery). For further information about the Society's work see the website.

Great Hale Cemetery Burial Records - please note that these have been compiled from our Burial Register and Plot Registers; unfortunately some of the historic data includes some anomalies (for example the dates given are listed as the dates of interments, but some appear to be the date of death, i.e., a few days earlier on one list than the other.)  Some information has been omitted to save space; if you require further detail, e.g. addresses, officiants, etc., for your research, please contact the Clerk 

War Memorial - during the restoration project in 2019, Mike Credland kindly shared his research with us - details of the fallen from the First World War are listed here. Tony Bush has also supplied information on Charles and William Woods. We'd love to hear from anyone else who has information about others listed on the memorial and are grateful for these details. Please note, though, that we cannot be held responsible for their accuracy, we suggest that researchers should visit source materials for themselves wherever possible.
