Miserden Memorial Inscriptions
Church Monumental Inscriptions 1880
The first volume of Gloucestershire Notes and Queries was published in 1881, edited by Rev. Beaver H. Blacker, M.A. The notes below are taken from this volume, and the spelling and grammar are as the original. The surnames have been put in capitals to aid identification.
In the original book the information was provided in separate alphabetical tables, split according to the location of the inscription within the church. This information has been condensed into a single table, with the right hand column referring to the location details as noted in the original book.
This list does not cover all memorial inscriptions at Miserden Church, because it was compiled in 1880, and also because it concentrated on the inscriptions within the church. Additions to the list are most welcome.
On the south wall of the nave there is a brass plate with this
"This church was restored by voluntary contributions, A.D. 1866. W.Y. Mills, M.A., Rector
J. Rolt, M.A., Mr.. H. Sadler, Churchwardens."

Here's in this Cabanet Earth's richest Treasure,
A pair unparalell'd, and therefore Reader,
Expect not Phrases in sad Elegyes,
To clawe thy Fancy, but to thaw thine eyes.
See here that Wealth, Bloud, Honour, Power, must
Return the owners to their Mother Dust.
Vertue embalms them still, with Christ they be;
That chang'd the Rome, but not their Company.
War Memorials, Miserden.
