It is probably St Margaret's C of E in Barking where there are a lot of memorials. It also has a
large graveyard, but a lot of the early headstones are hard or impossible to read. My ancestors
headstones were replaced by another family member, the local undertaker, some years ago.
Maybe someone on the list can check for you or contact the church. It is still a working church.
Have a look at this website http://www.saintmargarets.org.uk/ Their email address is
I hope this helps.

From National Archive records of Samuel James Allen and family
of Yorkshire, I have found a record of the
burial of Mary Kirton, including details of a memorial stone
According to Mr. Allen's records he recorded these details
during a visit to Barking Church, Essex, on
4 March, 1815. He also recorded additional details on 8 April,
1814 during a visit to Chingford Church,
At the Barking Church he recorded that the memorial stone lay
in the floor of the Chancel, and had the
"Here lies the Body of Mary Kirton, late wife of Thomas
Kirton of Thorp Mandeville, in the County of
Northampton, Esquire; eldest daughter of Sir William Dunche of
Little Wittenham, in the County of
Berks., Knight. who departed this Life the 23rd. Day of April,
Can any member please tell me if this memorial in Barking
Church is still in existance, and /or if there
is any record of a Kirton memorial still surviving in
Any information about these memorials would be of very great
My sincere thanks in advance for any information,
Jonathan Kirton, Canada (email: and / or
