Memorial Inscriptions – Bell

These pages contain selected memorial inscriptions from the churchyard or interior of All Saint’s Church, Wing. Any bits in brackets I’m not 100% sure of as it’s hard to see in the photos. If you’ve visited Wing you’ve probably got photos or notes about the gravestones for your families. If so, please share them by emailing me (the higher the resolution the better). For more surnames, please check the Memorial Inscriptions Index.
