Join the St Augustine's facebook page and ask there perhaps? https://m.facebook.com/groups/309666212554629

Chartham Asylum Burial Ground
« Reply #1 on: November 20, 2020, 10:20:46 PM »
I wonder if anyone can help me with information on a book I am writing on burial grounds? I am looking for anyone who visited the burial ground at St Augustine's hospital/asylum at Chartham before the redevelopment of the hospital site into housing. While the great majority of the graves would have been unmarked by headstones I know that some were, since there are photos of a 12 of these on the findagrave website. Some of these are staff members. I am keen to find out from anyone who remembers the site at any point before the rest of the hospital grounds were redeveloped. I am trying to get an idea as to whether there were any more headstones than these 12 that have been photographed https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/2275321/memorial-search#
Many thanks for your help,
