Search Hillsborough Graveyard:

This is an enclosed area to the north of Hillsborough Parish Church which is in the Main Street of the town. There was no church on the site until 1662 when Arthur Hill built it in his new town. There had however been an earlier chapel and parish of Cromlyn (Crumlin) from mediaeval times which had long been ruinous, and the Hill family had built an earlier church in 1636 which was burnt down in 1641.
The graveyard is contemporary with the church and the oldest date of death recorded is 1686 (Kirton).
It was enclosed in 1772 and the bodies which had been buried close to the walls of the church were removed to the graveyard so that the ground around the church could be levelled. The registers of baptisms and burials date back to 1777 and marriages to 1782. The Presbyterian baptismal register dates from 1833 and the marriage register from 1845.
