Church Interior

Although the majority of inscriptions within the church are memorials for the dead, other events, such as bell ringing, and a framed list of the Titular Vicars of Badsey & Aldington, are included in this survey. A plan of the church interior, shows the locations of the monumental inscriptions, with numbers prefixed with the letters Ch. in the notes. Here is the surname index.

In addition to the inscriptions listed below here are photographs of the organ, a CPRE Certificate for Winner of Best Kept Churchyard, an angel, the Rev Hunt and the Rev Price.

To raise his own he sunk no neighbours Fame
Blameless himself he would not others blame
From self blown Pride and vain Ambitions free
His highest Glory was Humility.

Titular Vicars of Badsey with Aldington
Before the Dissolution of the Monasteries, Badsey, like many other parishes of the
Vale, was a Chapel of the Abbey of Evesham, and was not under the jurisdiction
of the Bishop of Worcester. The Parish Priest was appointed by the Abbey and was
known as the Chaplain. The Chapelry was impropriated by Henry the Eighth to
Christ Church, Oxford, who have continued since to be rectors & patrons of the living,
and appoint a vicar or chaplain with the status of a perpetual curate. As the parish
was a "peculiar," and the minister was not instituted by the Bishop nor inducted by
the Archdeacon until recent times, little reference is to be found to its incumbents in the
Diocesan Registry. Since 1661 the benefices of Badsey & Wickhamford have been held
In plurality.
