Eccles Churchyard

Eccles Parish Church remains in use today, sitting on the southern end of the village, the graveyard extends around the church. The graveyard is well kept but sections are quite open to the elements.
The Monumental Inscriptions of Eccles churchyard were compiled by the Borders FHS some time ago, since the MI list was created many of the stones have been removed, been damaged or weathered so badly that they are no longer legible.
