Hi Len, welcome to the forum and website.

I cannot find any mention of a plan within this forum's old posts, or the rest of the site itself.

Have you tried asking the Church ?

This site doesn't have a plan, but if it included the burials you're interested in, then the photos should help.

I could be wrong, but thusfar I cannot find any mention of Lydney in the various cds sold by Glos FHS.

Hello Len,

I purchased a copy of the CD - St Mary's Lydney Memorial Transcriptions back in 2010 which contained a churchyard plan. It showed all of the headstones, flat ledger tombstones & box table-top old tombstones - all numbered & arranged in blocks around the church. This CD was the work of a lot of people in the Forest of Dean branch of the Glos FHS.

I looked at the website of the Glos FHS (as Jeff suggested) & found that the CD I purchased then seems to be not available anymore. However, there is a CD entitled: St Mary Lydney - Monumental Inscriptions in stock priced at £5 on their website shop. It might also contain a churchyard map?
However, if your ancestors did not have a stone to mark their resting place, then their exact burial plot would of course not be shown on this map.

As the churchyard of St Mary's is so huge, I found the map & reference numbers of the graves invaluable in locating the tombstones of my Benfield & James ancestors.
