This table was prepared from an index of burials in the Brinkworth Parish, published on the
internet in 1998 by Clive Henly. http://www.henly.f9.co.uk/wiltshire.html

There were 4,888 burials during the 230 years from 1653 to 1882. The average and median
numbers per year were close to 20, and varied very little between 50 year periods. 
The years of elevated numbers of burials are shown in colour, red for 40 and more, and orange
for 30 to 40. The worst year was 1786 when 50 were interred.
