Over the last 30 years the churchyard at St Annes Church in Baslow has been mapped, the stones listed and the inscriptions recorded.  At last they are available on the internet.  Read    about the project.

Photographs

At present photographs are too bulky for the website. I have photos of all the gravestones and am happy to forward copies (one or two only) to anyone interested. No charge,

 In return I would welcome information that I can keep for my records and perhaps add to the website.  You might consider a donation of a pound or two to your local church or other charity.    David
