Randwick Church Monumental Inscriptions
Details from Randwick Church memorial inscriptions, taken in 1879.
The first volume of Gloucestershire Notes and Queries was published in 1881, edited by Rev. Beaver H. Blacker, M.A., and is used for the bulk of the information detailed below. The spelling and grammar are as the original but surnames have been put in capitals to aid identification. The original data has been expanded to include age at death, as well as information from other sources.
This list does not cover all memorial inscriptions at the Church, because it was compiled before the end of the 19th century, and also because it concentrates on inscriptions within the church. Additions or corrections are most welcome.

In the Churchyard of Painswick there is a tomb with the inscription:- "To the memory of the late William HOGG, who died at a very advanced age on the 8th November, 1800. He was for fifty years a much esteemed gratuitious Preacher of the Gospel in the Tabernacles of London, Bristol, Rodborough, and various other places in this and the adjoining counties. It is incredible the sums of money he expended in charity. Also, of Betty, his excellent wife, who died 31st March, 1780. Her kindness and liberality to all, especially to the poor, was gratefully remembered, and often expressed, for many years after her decease. They had eight sons and four daughters, whom they lived to see comfortably established in life". This tomb was erected by Mr. Wm. GYDE, of Cheltenham, in place of an old one.
