Monumental Inscriptions

I have visited many of the churches in the area, recording and photographing gravestones with any of the surnames that I’m interested in, which is mostly Houghton so far. The listed towns below are links to pages of transcriptions that I have collected from various sources, including published volumes and my own notes from visits. The surnames I have recorded are in parentheses. Where possible I have included photographs of any headstones I have found.

Further information on the exact location of churches and graveyards in the area can be found in the GENUKI church database. Just enter the name of the town of interest.

Ashton in Makerfield (Houghton)

Golborne (Houghton)

Lowton (Houghton)

Newton le Willows (Houghton)

Widnes (Houghton, Riley)

Winwick (Houghton)
