War Graves Project

We have just started a special project  to clear the 49 war graves scattered throughout the old cemetery in readiness for a commemoration on Saturday November 3rd to mark the ending of the First World War 100 years ago.

  3. Yesterday our Friends of Teignmouth Cemetery volunteers completed their second maintainance round working on the 49 Commonwealth War Graves in Teignmouth old cemetery ….

    We have been working on the CWG every Saturday morning since the end of July ie removing ivy & brambles,levelling the ground on the graves and strimming grass on and around the graves plus also strimming safe access paths to each grave….

    Only one of the 49 CWG ie HOOK is regularly tended by a local relative

    Our FOTC CWG researchers are keen to hear from relatives about local history connected to our 40 CWG.
