The churchyard was closed to burials in 1874. A survey of memorials was carried out in 1935. Some headstones have been moved since then and many have become unreadable. However, if you are looking for burials in Sidmouth churchyard, this is the best source available. There are two links. The first is an alphabetical index of names, with reference to the location of the burial, first by map and then by number within the map. The second consists of maps of the parts of the churchyard with numbered graves, and details of memorials in number order.
