Memorials and Biographies of St. John’s

The great majority of the biographical notes published here have been kindly provided by respected Launceston historian, Jenny Gill, and were originally published in her book Engraved in Memory, J.S.Gill. 1988. Miss Gill has herself updated some of the information due to changes since her book was published.

As is the case with church buildings worldwide, there are many memorials associated with St. John’s Church, including plaques, windows, items of furniture, vases, chalices and contributions to the building and maintenance of the organ. They make fascinating reading, and add to our understanding of life in Launceston in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Added to these are further biographies or links to other websites, relating to past clergy and parishioners – the people of St. John’s Launceston over nearly 200 years.

Memorials in this contents page have been marked with M. Other biographies are marked B.
