Airton Quaker Burial Ground
Memorial Inscriptions

Plan of the Burial Ground at Airton (Click image for larger view)

The number of gravestones at Airton is far fewer than the number of burials, as originally it wasn't an accepted practice for the Society of Friends to mark graves in their burial grounds with permanent memorials. The reasons were both for simplicity and also to avoid any distinction between rich and poor, so even though the Airton Burial Ground has been in use since at least 1700 there are few grave markers to be seen today. Those present date from the latter half of the 19th century onwards and this survey was carried out in September 2008.      Click any photo to view a larger version.
