  3. Hi, my 3x great grandparents Peter and Eleanor Jackson were buried in Stretton in 1865 and 1873 respectively, but I can’t see them on the Monumental Inscriptions list. Can you tell me if they have a gravestone in the churchyard and if so, is it possible to send me details of the inscription? Many thanks, Hilary O’Rourke

    Hi Hilary, there are lots of gravestones still standing but sadly not one at the Jacksons’ grave.
