This record of the memorials in Holy Trinity Church, Barrow-upon-Soar, is the work of the Barrow Heritage group over almost twelve months. It developed out of an earlier project which looked at some Barrow Notables and Luminaries. The church was an obvious place to look for significant people who have lived in the village.
We hope that this will be of interest to visitors to the church and that it will also provide the church with an accurate record of the memorials.
We are very grateful to all the people who have helped us
We have tried very hard to check that everything we have written is accurate however if there are any errors or omissions, or if you have anything to add, please tell us.
In doing the recording we have followed the conventions of NADF AS (National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies) so they are done in a nationally recognised style.
We have started the numbering of the fixed memorials on the South side of the chancel and continued clockwise round the church. Their position is shown on the plan of the church.
The movable memorials are listed separately with an indication of where they are currently situated.
We have included a list of the memorials which are described in earlier publications about the church but which are no longer visible.
The information on the Stained Glass Windows was kindly given by Paul Sharpling D.A.C. We are grateful to him for permission to use it.
The numbers 1-10 in the left hand margin of each record indicate:
