The Friends of Hastings Cemetery website is a compilation of stories related to some of the graves in the Borough Cemetery. (Use the Google search facility on the first page, or go to )

Mostly we concentrated on the older plots, and private memorials to the casualties of the first World War.

Others have been researched following enquiries, or by a researcher being fascinated by the memorial, or what is written on them, or in some cases, the dilapidated state of the memorial.

In the process we compiled a database of extant memorials in A - G, based on the work done by R A Longley.

(For an explanation of some anomalies, see )

This database now been converted to a pdf file by Alan Jeffries (to whom many thanks) which is searchable.
