PURVIS ALMS HOUSES

1893 
The Purvis Almshouses were conveyed upon trust in 1827, to permit from five to seven poor aged women, and one poor aged
man, to dwell free from all rent and expense, the appointment resting with the rector of the parish, froim the inhabitants, whether
legally settled or not, “such persons only to be chosen who by their poverty should be wholly incapable for providing
themselves with lodging without great difficulty, who bear a good, sober, industrious, honest, and peaceable character, and are
regular in their attendance at their parish church.”
The Rector may turn them out of the almshouses whom he may judge “by their disorderly or improper conduct, by wilful
absence from church, or for any other cause.”
500 Three per cent Consolidated Bank Annuities was settled upon trust after paying the costs of the trust, to apply a
competent part of the dividends to repairs and distribute (after the death of Amy Loetitia Purvis) the residue in coals, clothing
or money among the inmates of the cottages.

Beccles Almanack 
Almshouses for the reception of aged widows in reduced circumstances are situated in Fair Close.

Blyburgate LL

This building has a crow step gable, and appears to be jettied on its south side.
Looking at an etching done of the street by the slicitor and local historian, SW Rix, in about 1840 or 1850, only the southern
gable was built at that time and from this a lamp was suspended.

a few minutes he proceeded to the Church attended by his officers, the Rector, many visiting clergy, the Prtreeve and
Corporation of the town, Churchwardens, etc.
The prayers were impressively read by Dr Owen, at which the Bishop appeared to pay very marked attention. The parties which
were to compose the procession now arranged themselves and wound slowly towards the place of consecration in the
following order:

The time occupied in going from the Church to the Chapel Ground was about half an hour. The concourse of people was very
great and so eager were they to get a sight of His Lordship that a considerable exertion on the part of the Constables was
necessary to keep them from pressing into the line of the procession. After the ceremony of parading around the Burial Place,
His Lordship situated himself at the entrance of the Chapel and after offering up a prayer and performing the requisite
ceremony, the choir in front of the Chapel sang the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth verses of the thirty-ninth psalm in a very able
style. The procession now returned to the King’s Head Inn where an excellent cold collation was given by the Corporation and
upwards of sixty persons partook of the delicacies of the season. Frederick Farr, Esq., Portreeve in the chair.The Bishop after
taking some refreshments departed in his carriage for Norwich. His Lordship appeared in good health and expressed his
satisfaction with the occurrences of the day.

During the 1939-45 War the heavy iron railings which enclosed the ground were removed for salvage purposes. Afterwards
some of the larger monuments were in such a ruinous state that it was decided to clear the ground and place the better
preserved stones neatly by the wall adjoining the premises next to the street.
St Anne’s brook on its eastern side.
Graves dug near the river immediately filled with water - closed before all the site had been filled.
Details of graves recorded by RC Dunt - kept in archives.
136 burials with stones - others may have had no stones.

Burial Grounds
from Eugene Ulph’s Scrapbook, Beccles Museum

ARISING out of the possibility that the old burial ground at Blyburgate, Beccles, may he used as an official car park,
for the Borough. Its use as a place of interment was not of very long duration and ended just over a century ago. For
some years a few tombstones neatly placed close together in a corner of the site have given the casual passer by an
indication as to its former use as the final resting-place of a bygone generation of townspeople. During the last war the
heavy iron railings which enclosed the ground were removed for salvage purposes. Afterwards. some of the larger
monuments were in such a ruinous state that it was decided to clear the ground of all tombstones and memorials and
place the better preserved stones neatly by the wall of adjoining premises next to the street. The clearance naturally
made the one-time burial ground a small park. The Corporation placed seats in it, and under the stately trees many a
Becclesian has spent a pleasant half-hour watching the passing traffic or, in the case of older folk, recounting the days
which are now but memories. It was in the early part of last century that permission for the use of the churchyard of
the Parish Church in the middle of the town for burials was withdrawn as it was full. A new cemetery, predecessor of
the present one at London Road was then laid out at the south end of Blyburgate. The ground, adjoining the road to
Lowestoft, was consecrated in 1823 and a small chapel was erected. That, of course, was well before the coming of
the railway, which now runs close by.
Forming part of a large piece of ground which later became known as the Nurseries, the cemetery had on its eastern

extremity a stream called from medieval times St. Anne’s Brook.
Brook detrimental

This small rivulet had its source in the farmlands on the high ground to the south of the town. It flowed through Swines
Green and passed under what was called St. Anne’s Bridge in the street of that name, now known as Ingate Street.
Eventually, after passing the fringe of Beccies Fen. it discharged its water into the River Waveney.
The close proximity of the brook to the burial ground was to prove a decided detriment, for as graves were dug nearer
to its course they immediately filled with water. It was said that many an interment took place in an extremely watery
grave. This eventually led to the closure of the cemetery before the amount of space available had been used. The
authorities secured a piece of land next to a small burial ground at London Road used by the dissenting churches in the
town. So the two were merged into one cemetery. which is still in use.
Before the old burial ground at Blyburgate was cleared in modern times the late Mr. R. C. Dunt, a well-known and
greatly respected citizen of the borough, set about the task of recording for the benefit of posterity the inscriptions on
the tombstones. Head master of the former National School at Ravensmere for many years until retirement, Mr. Dunt
was a pillar of the Beccles and District Historical Society and felt that his effort would be of great local value.
Mr Dunt carried out his task in the early summer of 1943, and was a valuable addition to the local records which are
accommodated at the Town Hall.
Source of reference

These lists naturally contain several names often met with even today, and provide a source of reference when tracing
ancenstry. They are particularly interesting in that they throw a very searching light on the longevity of those days, but
the picture they present is not a happy one.
The records refer to 136 burials, but there were possibly other interments made without being followed up by a stone
giving details. Forty of the inscriptions related to children up to the age of ten years. Another 37 concerned those who
had died before reaching the age of 30. Less than half the total, the remaining 59 people lived to a greater age. It is
interesting to note that only two of them became nonagenarians. One lasted to the age of 98 and the other to 97.
Infantile mortality, as shown by the lists prepared by Mr. Dunt, was a terrible feature of life in the last century. The
death rate among young people, as also revealed, was truly alarming. Happily, the achievements of medical science in
recent years have almost eradicated this terrible state of affairs and have closed a chapter of which the old Blyburgate
burial ground was a fearful indictment.

It may be that controversy will arise over the suggestion that a pleasant open space should become a car park, but it is
fervently to be hoped that a change will not mean the wholesale removal of the stately trees which grace the land, at
least that part which fronts Blyburgate.

Beccles Wkly 21 May 

BECCLES Presentation To Mr R. WARD. The teachers of the Sunday-school connected with the
Congregational  Church  met  in  the  School-rooms  on  Tuesday  last,  and  took  tea  together.  After
opening the proceedings with singing and prayer. The Rev John FLOWER, president of the school,
who was in the chair, said the main feature of the present meeting was the recognising of the transfer
of the office of superintendent from Mr WARD to Mr Henry READ. Mr FLOWER remarked that the
term of Mr WARD's connection with the school had been unusually long - it had lasted fifty years,
and what years these had been! What a change had come over the people of this country during that
time! Whole classes of people could now read whose parents were altogether illiterate. This change
had produced a corresponding one in the work of Sunday-school teaching; whereas fifty years ago
the duty of a teacher was to instruct in the art of reading - now he had far higher aims. The duty
demanded  higher  requisites in a teacher, and involved increasing responsibility. The disinterested
kindness shewn [sic] towards the children gave the teachers a hold on their parents which should be
employed  for  good.  Our  beloved  Queen  has  recorded that when she first heard the Rev Norman
M'CLEOD pray in an earnest manner for the Royal Children she "felt a lump rise in her throat;" all
parents in this respect are alike - "one touch of nature makes the whole world kin." .....The Rev J.
FLOWER, said that he had been requested by the teachers to make a present to Mr WARD in their
name, which he did with very great pleasure. He spoke of the diligence with which Mr WARD had
fulfilled his duties, and of the simplicity of purpose which he had shewn [sic], never employing his
official superiority to gratify the love of power, or even to appear to assert pre-eminence over his
brethren..... ....Mr FLOWER then begged Mr WARD's acceptance of a silver inkstand, bearing the
following inscription: -"presented to Mr Robert WARD by the teachers of the Independent Sunday-
school, Beccles, on his retiring from the office of Superintendent, after a connection with the school of
upwards of fifty years. May 14th, 1867."
DRAINAGE:  Opposition to drainage of town by J Crisp, J Edwin Crisp, WE Crowfoot, H Sharpin,

RETIREMENT of Rev John Flower; 325 collected for presentation.
Presided over by SW Rix, with R Ward & JL KENT (deacons) & Rev J Blake, SK Bland & H Stacey
(Beccles), Rev J Brown (Wrentham) etc.
Rix:  “They  meet  that  night  under  very  affecting  circumstances.  It was not merely that they were
parting with their old Pastor; but one could not help feeling the singular fact that another Minister in
the town, only yesterday had left his church - had left it indeed in a good old age. It was true he had
retired before, but he had now left it altogether. His life had ended at a good old age ... Never, truly,

There is a photograph of Blyburgate probably taken in the 1860s showing the whitesmith’s shop.
One of the buildings in an alley at the side bears the date 1859, but the rest of the building at the back is probably 16th or
