1938 Consecration of graveyard extension

The Lord Bishop of Exeter (the reverend C E Curzon) yesterday consecrated the extension of Uplowman churchyard. The land was bequeathed by the late Charles William Rabjohns, of Uplowman Court. After considerable labour in removing and rebuilding the hedge and uprooting trees, at a cost of nearly £50, the extension is now in a presentable appearance.

There then follows details of the service.

Leaving the Church, the people followed the Bishop and clergy to the new ground, where a marquee had been erected. The deeds of the property were read by Mrs W  Andrew (church secretary) and signed by the Revs. LG Ketchley and LG Chamberlen.
