Hello Barbara,

Not sure if this is the same church but I think that it is the same Church
(St Thomas's?) that my Great Grandmother married in - this has a bomb that
landed during WWII into the graveyard. If you Google Navestock Church there
are some pictures of it and what happened. There are gravestones there
though ... not all over but there are some there some which are shown in the
Google Search.

I tried to find information about 15 - 20 years ago and the Vicar at the
time seemed to want to not give out information without costing a lot of
Money. I purchased a Marriage cert from GRO instead but I was trying to
find if there was any others of my family buried there.

Safe journey and enjoy your family hunting.

Subject: [Ess] My visit to the UK

Late last year I enquired about visiting Navestock, Essex, to see whether I
could get to see the graves of my ancestors, Joshua Prior(or Pryor or
Pryer) and his wife Susannah Nottage.
So the time is nearly there for my visit to England and it seems that there
is no record of the graves although I got records to the effect when and
where Joshua died.
It is a great disappointment for me, as fellow genealogist will know, that I
will not be able to see the graveyard, let alone the gravestone.
