Parish register

The following is a list of burials in St Andrew's Churchyard, transcribed by Mr. and Mrs. Hatch. The transcription is a selection (it looks like it is those that the Hatches found particularly interesting), is handwritten and difficult to read in places; it is taken from a register that was itself handwritten. Errors are inevitable, and so the list should be used with caution – I would welcome input from anyone who has had access to the original..

Mrs John Luscombe was buried in August 1890, but the funeral was not without incident. At the graveside a side plank gave way, 'precipitating two of the bearers and the sexton into the grave'. The bearers were able to get out relatively easily, but the sexton needed considerable assistance. One of the chief mourners began to scream, 'too distinctly audible to be pleasant'. The Totnes Weekly Times noted that such an event was bound to cause comment in a small town, 'for at least the usual nine days.'
Totnes Weekly Times 16 August 1890 p8 col3

Mrs John Luscombe was probably Elizabeth Luscombe, aged 81, buried on August 11th 1890
