Eastfield Graveyard, Lightcliffe

The graveyard of Eastfield Chapel, Lightcliffe.

In 1680, Dr Richard Sterne issued a license which allowed baptisms and burials to take place at the chapel. Early gravestones – such as one for a man called Batley dated 15th February 1665 and one for Esther, wife of Robert Hanson of Hove Edge, dated June 1674 - suggest that burials took place before that date.

The following people, and/or members of their family, were buried and/or have memorials here:

Robert  B. Brownrigg

William Rushforth
