For this church:
Barton-in-Fabis St George
The large churchyard surrounds the building on all sides. There are several mature trees. Seven new trees were planted by the farmers of Barton to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee in 1977.
Nottinghamshire Family History Society recorded most of the gravemarkers in 1979; many of these are now lost or partially obscured in the grass; the earliest at that time was dated 1702.
Of some interest are:
The tomb of the Revd Fitzgerald Wintour, Rector of the church from 1829-63, is in the churchyard.
The lamp above the churchyard gate was erected at the time of the coronation of King George V, 22nd June 1911.
