May 2020 update: As the individual church / cemetery pages at BillionGraves no longer list the names of the memorials photographed and indexed at each site, their usefulness as a local history resource is much reduced and I have removed them from the list above. For those still wishing to access them to search for graves, those with more than a handful of gravestones pictured and indexed include: Cheswardine St Swithun , Hadley Cemetery, Hinstock St Oswald, Hodnet St Luke, Market Drayton Cemetery, Newport St Nicholas, Telford St George, Wellington All Saints, Wellington General Cemetery.
