Jurby is a village on the north-west coast of the Island and is reached from Ramsey, a seaport on the north-east coast six miles distant. The church of St. Patrick is the parish church of Jurby, and the churchyard is the parish burial ground, the Authority in which it is vested being the Incumbent and Churchwardens. It lies in an isolated position on the sea-coast, some way from the village, and covers one-and-a-half acres.
Historical Information: Early in the 1939-1945 War the Royal Air Force built an aerodrome at Jurby, about a mile from the church for use as a training school. The airmen who lost their lives while training there were buried in the churchyard, and a small section in the north-eastern corner was reserved for these service burials. This group of war graves is on the far side of the new extension to the old churchyard. The total number of 1939-1945 War burials is 43, and all except three are within the group.
For other Jurby burials see Jurby Monumental Inscriptions, Old & New Yards by Sheila and Alan Tarr, published by the Isle of Man Family History Society, 1996.
