T     Triangular Plot - Between the Lych Gate and the East Gate.   Please note the reference "T8" etc is not an official number, but purely an aid to identify the location of a known grave site on this Website.

*    Nora Meurig Jones's Abode was a house, which she and her husband Owen had built in 1957, after moving from Northampton, with their three young children.   It was called rather strangely "Bleachments", the name originating from an adjoining field.   It stands on the corner of Main Street and Back Lane, in Great Brington For nearly half a century Nora made Brington her home.   She seemed to be a member of every possible committee or organisation within the parish and her death in July, 2005 was accompanied by a great feeling of sadness.   In the meantime, "Bleachments" was sold, has had a complete facelift and apparently is due for a name change.   Nora's favourite collection of roses has somehow survived the diggers and shovels and will continue to be a lovely reminder of Nora and her family.   She died at the age of 81 on July 21st,2005 and is buried in the same grave as her husband Owen Meurig Jones #303.   A photograph can be seen at T8. Part of the inscription is in Welsh DWFN HEDD - DEEP PEACE.

* +   Karen Mascarenhas lived in the Swedish Houses, very close to the former Baptist Chapel in Little Brington.   On the second of October,2005,  she died in a tragic car accident on the edge of the village,  near the crossroads to Flore.  Her age was a mere 18 years.   Her mortal remains were laid to rest in the centre section of the original churchyard.   Her white headstone is easy to recognize.   Look for a statue of an angel. 

*    Edith Helen Williams known by everyone as Betty or Bet, lived all of her life in Little Brington.   Her father, and before that, her Grandfather ran the Blacksmiths Shop, known as the Old Forge.   The front garden of her house had some flowers, but much more likely plenty of vegetables, with leeks, onions and Brussel sprouts in abudance.   The Forge now has new residents, but the sprouts have disappeared and been replaced with immaculate green turf.   Betty was known for her love of animals and kept a small flock of sheep, which sometimes accompanied her down Main Street.   When villagers took holidays in far-away places, their pets were cared for with the rest of her menagerie.  Betty died on the 16th December, 2005.  Her grave and headstone T61,  are located next to the stone wall, not far from the garden seat.  Many of her close relatives sleep close by.  Take a rest on the seat and look to the middle distance, in the direction of East Haddon, it is almost certain that you will see a flock of sheep grazing on the hillside.
