11. Tournant Graveyard and ‘Cantwell’s memorials of the dead’.

Tournmant Graveyard visit
Chris Lawlor

Diversion 11. Tournant graveyard was in use from the mid-eighteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries, but many of the headstones are now illegible due to the effects of weathering. Luckily, however, some of the names of some of those interred there were recorded by Brian Cantwell. He visited many parts of the country recording memorials, and fortunately Tournant was one of those places. Cantwell focused on pre-1880 stones, but he recorded some dates after this if they were on the same headstone as the pre-1880 ones. Here is Cantwell’s list for Tournant cemetery. Original spellings have been retained. [Note: n.d. means no date on the stone; e.s. refers to the person who erected the stone].
