The Dawe Family graves in the Old Cemetery, Tring
The Dawe Family graves in the Old Cemetery, Tring
These three gravestones make the last resting place of members of the Dawe family, who lived at Town Farm, Tring. They were among the stones that survived the clearance, and you can read the inscriptions by selecting a larger image. The right hand stone records the death of Jane Dawe, daughter of James and Elizabeth, who died December 12, 1856, aged 11 years. The stone is later, but Jane is one of the earliest burials in the cemetery recorded on a surviving stone.
The Old Graveyard at Tring
When the old churchyard got full in Victorian times a new plot was opened in 1853 next to what was then the Rectory Garden. This rapidly filled with burials and when I arrived in Tring in the mid 1960s this was a solid sea of gravestones. Shortly afterwards the area was developed and the graveyard was opened up as an open space in 1973 - and only a few of the gravestones were retained.

The Tring & District Local History Society produced a booklet in about 2005 listing the surviving graves, and (surnames only) the graves removed in 1973.
