Ryde Cemetery Map – Plan showing how the individual RSHG numbered maps cover the whole of the Cemetery.

In March 2009 RSHG maps of the Old Parish Cemetery and the Old Cemetery were completed, and David started mapping the New Cemetery. He completed the task in July 2010. 63 RSHG Maps of Ryde Cemetery have been produced and are available below. You can read David’s report on the project here.
