Family History
If you are researching your family history you may have traced some ancestors to West Sussex.  The West Sussex Records Office in Chichester is in the top ten in the country and provides an impressive service.  If you have managed to trace your ancestors to the Parish of Tillington, perhaps we can be of some assistance.
The original churchyard was in the grounds of All Hallows' Church.  It is now longer use and although most of the headstones have been moved and positioned around the perimeter, some are still legible.  The current cemetery is a few hundred yards from the church. Here you will find headstones which date primarily from around 1922, but you will also find some Victorian headstones both in the main cemetery and some in a small area west of the double row of lime trees. Once again these stones have been re-positioned around the perimeter of the area.
Using the navigation buttons below you will find a ground plan of our current cemetery, together with burial records dating from the earliest graves.  These records provide not only the plot number for cross referencing, but also age and date of death/burial.  If you find any inaccuracies or omissions please let us know using the 'Contact Us' facility.  Similarly if you need any help or further information please contact us.

The headstones in the two older cemeteries have also been transcribed and names and dates can be found using the relevant navigation buttons.

For a small fee (to church funds) we can provide images of individual headstones  and copies of entries in the 1922 burial register.
