Please note that we do not hold historical records at the church.
Such records are held by the North Devon Records Office at Barnstaple, which is a branch of the County Records Office at Exeter. They have a list of Parish Registers that they hold.
You may at times find that the Record Office lists South Molton as Molton, South.
It may also help you to know that our churchyard was closed for burials in the middle of the 19thC., and any burials locally from 1860 would have been in the town cemetery. Enquiries in respect of such can be made with South Molton Town Council
The churchyard plots were all grassed over, and the area is now a 'green' space, maintained by the Town Council. What gravestones survive have either been placed in the retaining walls around the grassed areas, or laid flat in the north-west corner of the churchyard. These no longer mark the original burial plots. South Molton Museum may have some records relating to these gravestones.
South Molton has a small, but excellent, local museum, which could be a source of information, and is usually open during the months of March to October. Their website can be found at www.southmoltonmuseum.org
