Friends of St Crispins Cemetery - Update

Friends of St Crispins Cemetery - Update

We have formed this group to bring the cemetery back to a good standard and the on-going project has been allied to Upton Parish Council to ensure continued support for our local heritage. Northampton Borough Council are also involved, as the owners of the land, and both councils have offered help, as required.

The St Crispin Hospital was opened in 1876 and was known as the County Lunatic Asylum. The hospital remained open until 1995 but during the war years 1916 – 1919, it was under the control of the War Office treating the servicemen of the Great War. More »

We have established, through research at the County Records Office, that 2265 burials were carried out between 1928 and 1975. There is evidence that foreign soldiers were treated at the hospital, but we have not yet identified if any were actually buried there. We have uncovered a total of 293 plaques which will require some work to ensure their preservation.

We are looking for more members to join the group: not just to help with minor works but from people who are interested in helping us build a comprehensive record. We already have some members with a good knowledge of the Hospital and welcome any of you to join us.

In the first instance, please contact:

Upton parish: bigger than you may thinkā€¦

Stortons Gravel Pits from National Lift Tower (John Boland)

Our parish doesn't just cover the new housing that's sprung up recently in this part of the town. Upton parish spans an area as far as the former St Crispin's Hospital site, off Berrywood Road in Duston to the sustainable Upton Park development off Weedon Road, neighbouring Sixfields. Some 3664 people live in the parish, according to the 2011 census.
