The Baptist Church is one of the oldest and largest Protestant groups in the world. Great Warford claims it began in 1668 but it may have been older.

In 1691 two years after the Act of Toleration the Baptists acquired a plot of land at Mottram St. Andrew, about 5 miles away, to be used as a burial ground. The graves can still be seen in Oak Lane and date from 1691 to 1755.


St Thomas was built between 1822 and 1825.

This transcription was undertaken in 1919 and has a mixture of handwritten and typed entries.

The cemetery at St George's church in Poynton has over 2000 graves with the earliest being 1840.

The download has a brief history of the church, plans, indexes and inscriptions.



The memorial inscriptions wereoriginally transcribed by the ladies of Willaston W.I. in 1984. In 2015 these original, handwritten, transcriptions were checked (and corrected where necessary), by Bebington Family History Group. Additions to the memorials,since 1984, were recorded and these additions are indicated in the transcriptions by prefixing them with “2015:”. The names recorded on the memorials were then indexed. However, as we also had access to the burial index we have included some names from this index that are not on the headstone. These names are indicated in our name index by a “#” after the Christian name. A diagrammatic plan of the churchyard produced and all of the grave plots were photographed.
