This page is for photos of gravestones from Holy Trinity Churchyard where something remains visible of an inscription, but there wasn't enough information in what was visible to positively identify the person commemorated and make a profile for them.


Sarah Holden

  ...ER 2_ 18_6
  [AG]ED 1_? YEARS

There is a death registration for a Sarah Holden in the last quarter of 1846 in Guildford, aged 57. The only match I could see for her in the 1841 census in Guildford was a Sarah Holder who had a 14-year-old Mariah Holder in her household, so would likely be her mother, so not a great match as the Sarah on the gravestone is likely a spinster or her husband rather than her father would be named.

Cn. G. W. R.

A year might be written below but isn't visible in this photo. Last letter uncertain. Needs better photo. Couldn't find an obvious match in FamilySearch records.

Mary Peyton

  1793 Aged 7[5]

Burial 27 Oct 1793, abode Stoke.[1]

No other Peytons currently listed in the Holy Trinity records on freeReg. No will listed in the National Archives catalogue. Not profiled because maiden name not known.

Edward Channell

There are a number of possible matches listed on freeReg. Some (all of which have surname Chennel rather than Channell) are identified as burials in Guildford, but have no church specified, so it's hard to be sure whether they are possible matches or not. Two burials, both in 1839, are definitely at Holy Trinity and have surname Channell. One is aged one year nine months, so is unlikely to have his own large gravestone. The other is aged 35, so is the likeliest match.

E.S. & T.S.

  E + S
  T? + S

There might be a date under the second set of initials, but if so it's not readable in this photo. There are 12 E.S. death registrations in Guildford in 1842. Probably not Emma Stevens, who is listed on FamilySearch as buried at St Mary's.

Harriet Str...y

Stone fairly worn but a better photo might pick up more of the inscription. No matches on the name found in freeReg burials at Holy Trinity or in death registrations on freeBMD, so it might be wrong. An infant Harriet Street was buried at Holy Trinity in 1804, and as the name comes near the bottom of the stone it might perhaps be her if the last letter is T instead of Y (a large stone like that is somewhat unlikely to have been purchased for an infant, but they might be listed on it below other names)

No match found on freeReg or in death registrations, so the reading may be wrong.

Second photo is really of the smaller stone, but also shows a bit of the inscription on the taller one behind.

Mrs Sarah Wild

  Memory of
  who departed this Life
  April 11, 1791

There is no match for this in the Holy Trinity burial records (transcribed on freeReg, and not a transcription error), but they do have a Mary Wild who was buried on 17 Apr 1791.[2] Presumably this is Sarah, and either the gravestone or the burial record has her forename wrong... or maybe she was Sarah Mary, or Mary Sarah.

Sarah - or Mary - was probably the wife of John Wild, a shoemaker of Guildford who was in Holy Trinity parish in 1793, and had fire insurance.[3]

There was also an Ann Wild burial at Holy Trinity who might perhaps have been his wife instead (no age given for Ann).

John died in 1816, aged 62, and was also buried in Holy Trinity Churchyard.[4]

...IAM STE...

  ...IAM STE[VW]...
  and [H_]...

Forename probably William, surname probably Stevens. Probably a child, because the line after his name may have read "son of ... and ...". Mother's forename probably begins with H. There was a William Stevens burial in 1780 (son of James)[5] who might perhaps fit the bill; his mother's name isn't given in his baptism record[6] but is likely to have been Sarah if she married in Guildford.[7] Not only does Sarah not begin with an H, but the gravestone is more reminiscent of ones from the 1840s in its style and level of wear.

There was a 32-year-old William Stevens buried in 1839; probably not him since the parents are named, but it might be him.[8]
