There are approximately 410 headstones – graves
in this graveyard, many with multiple people buried on each grave
site. The Grey Abbey Graveyard is in chaos.
density of the gravestones, both standing and lying on their face, mixed with
the damp and enclosed nature of the site, render maintenance difficult.
A very small number
of “discovered” headstones are those of McCUTCHEONS. 9 in total.
