New maps of Ryde Cemetery have been produced by RSHG's Map Master, David Earle, using the old hand drawn maps from Bereavement Services, details from the Burial Registers, and diligent surveying in the Cemetery. The new maps should make it easier for people to find a particular grave.
56 RSHG Maps of Ryde Cemetery have been produced. The surveying and mapping of Ryde Cemetery took five years to complete and you can read David's report on the project here.
Link to map of the whole of Ryde Cemetery showing the individual RSHG numbered maps. In March 2009 RSHG maps of the Old Parish Cemetery and the Old Cemetery were been completed, and David started mapping the New Cemetery and completed the task in July 2010.
Each record (on the graves page) gives a map and grid reference: e.g. Ellen DUSELDORFT can be found on map RSHG 001, and in grid box A1. The Transcribing Group only records the names that can be seen on the memorials but you may still be able to find the location of burials where there are no markers or where the graves are too overgrown to read. Try looking up the names in the Alphabetical Map Indexes as these Indexes include ALL the names for all the graves shown on the maps, even if we have been unable to transcribe them.
Links to the maps and the Alpha-Index are provided below. If you spot any inaccuracies please let us know.
Please be aware that even with the maps some graves are difficult or near impossible to locate on the ground. Please refer to the legend, which explains the conventions used in drawing the maps, for example, whether the grave plot has a marker, has been recorded, or is overgrown.
If you have any problems using the maps, please contact David Earle.
The Map files are *.pdf files. If you don’t have an Adobe *.pdf viewer you can download one as a free download from http://www.adobe.co.uk/main.html . The files are large (to enable them to be easily read) so please allow them time to load.
