Some of you might find this useful-

If you have access to (or another index to Griffiths
Valuation) then you can look up Griffiths Val to get a list of graveyards in
any county or parish in the 1850's.

Just enter "yard" in the name field and search. Dont use "grave" as this
will give you persons by the name Graves.
By the way, the reason graveyards are listed in Griffiths is that they were
exempt from paying rates.
