Tintern Abbey
Tintern
Monmouthshire  Wales

Cemetery notes and/or description:
On order from King Henry VIII, on 3 September 1536 Abbot Wyche surrendered Tintern Abbey and all its estates to the King's visitors and ended a way of life that had lasted 400 years. Valuables from the Abbey were sent to the royal Treasury. The building was granted to the then lord of Chepstow, Henry Somerset, 2nd Earl of Worcester. Lead from the roof was sold and the decay of the buildings began.

Today it will be very difficult to discover any remains of the monuments and burials that have taken place at this abbey.
