The following is a transcription of the burial record book kept by ministers and officials at burials at The Baptist Church, St. Peters, Broadstairs, England. The graveyard was closed in 1937, part of it having already been built over in 1894. The gravestones were removed to the surrounding walls in the early 1960′s, but a record was maintained of their positions at that time. The diagram of locations and associated documentation is repeated in this document. Many of the limestone headstones are now in a poor state, and there are a number of broken stones. The headstones have been recorded by the Kent Family History Society and the record is available.
