Carmavy Graveyard

Introduction

by Catherine Blumsom

 

Within a walled enclosure, on a quiet country road in the parish of Killead, Co. Antrim, lies Carmavy Graveyard. A surprisingly windy place even on a summer’s day, it is an unassuming but not unpleasant place. The burial ground is managed by a committee and carefully tended by a sexton who lives in the house adjacent to the graveyard. What a change from the situation in the nineteenth century when the graveyard merited adverse comments about its “irregular state” and the slovenly way in which it was kept.
