If you are researching your family history, you may have traced some ancestors to West Sussex. The West Sussex Records Office in Chichester is in the top ten in the country and provides an impressive service. If you have managed to trace your ancestors to the Parish of Tillington, perhaps we can be of some assistance.
The original churchyard was in the grounds of All Hallows Church. It is now no longer used and although most headstones have been moved and positioned around the perimeter, some are still legible. The current cemetery is a few hundred yards from the church along Cemetery Lane which is due west of the church. In addition to headstones from 1922 onwards you will also find some Victorian headstones west of the double row of trees. These stones have been re-positioned around the perimeter of the area.
Using the red buttons below you will find a ground plan of our current cemetery, together with burial records dating from around 1922. These records provide not only the plot number for cross referencing with the ground plan for location purposes, but also age and date of death/burial. We cannot claim that they are a complete record and therefore please use the 'Contact us' facility if you need any information or help. In addition we would like to hear from anyone who can provide a name, etc for the unmarked graves.
The headstones in the two older cemeteries have also been transcribed and names and dates can be found using the blue or green buttons below.
For a small fee (to church funds) we can provide images of individual headstones and copies of entries in the 1922 church burial book. In the first instance please use the 'Contact us' facility.
A new list has been added to this page: It is the 'Christenings, Marriages and Burials records of All Hallows Church', Tillington from 1810 to 1912. For a fee of £5.00 we can provide you with a copy of the original entry in the record books (no charge if it cannot be found). The whole fee will be donated to the Church Repair Fund. (use the Contact us button)
