Here we present the results of a major survey which involved recording and photographing almost every monumental inscription at St. Jamesí Church, Badsey. Peter Stewart carried out the survey in 2001 and 2002.

Peter Stewart has published his survey of Badsey church and churchyard in a beautifully illustrated book. He has kindly allowed us to publish an online version of this on this website.

The Inscriptions

Where possible, I have presented each inscription as written on the monument, using bold lettering only for names. Stonemasons names are also included in the inscriptions, but not in bold lettering. In the B&MSGH surveys, surnames and forenames are displayed in BLOCK CAPITALS, and the rest of the inscription in lower case. Square brackets are used to enclose eroded and unreadable parts of the inscriptions. And where appropriate the missing information has been added after reference to the burial registers.

Where burials are commemorated, all inscription are followed, in square brackets, by a reference line, given the following details:
