St Cadoc's Churchyard Gravestones

St Cadoc's Lych Gate

The oldest grave we can identify in our Churchyard today is xxxxx But the first Church in Raglan was erected in the 6th century.

Most of the Church we see today was built by William Herbert, Earl of Pembroke and his son, another William. Herbert inherited Raglan Castle from his father, Sir William ap Thomas, and on July 16th, 1469 he made a will just before he was taken prisoner at the battle of Edgecote and beheaded. “I bequeath” says the will “all the Salt that I have outsept as much as will make the Body and Iles of the Church at Raglan as it (is) purposed now by me. The Chauncell to be at the pleasure of God.” His son, the 1st Earl of Huntingdon, made a further bequest for the building in his will dated 1483, and he lived until 1491.

So what happened? ..... Well we know that the Church yard was full in the 1860's.
