Across Sections A to I the number of plots which have no marker indicating who was buried in them averages 36%. In addition a large number of recorded interments do not have names on the markers which do exist. This may be for any number of reasons. Most commonly, wooden crosses weather away, or fall and rot on the ground in time. Gravestones may not have been inscribed following a second or third burial because the cost was too great or there was no relative to commission a memorial inscription. We can include names, dates and plot numbers here because the SUDC/LDC records give such details. In contrast, St Leonard's and St Peter's Parish Records may indicate a burial but no location.
These lists are provided primarily to aid anyone searching for records of family members, and who may wish to visit the plot in which a relative was interred. For further details please consult Lewes District Council, who have the original records of cemetery burials.

Names of those whose grave markers, if erected, have disappeared from their cemetery plots or
whose names are not mentioned on existing grevestones.
