by William Roulston

 

Grange graveyard is a small and overcrowded burial ground close to the village of Bready, about 6 miles north of Strabane. It is located in the townland of Grangefoyle. Adjacent to the graveyard is Grange House, a private dwelling in the Georgian style, and a range of mainly dilapidated out-buildings. The River Foyle flows in a northerly direction a few hundred metres to the west of the graveyard. Much of the land between the river and the graveyard was reclaimed in the nineteenth century. Grange Graveyard is a wonderful place to study the history of the surrounding area. Its headstones commemorate a wide range of local families and reveal much about them.
