I've indexed the whole cemetery and the letter and numbers above each entry locate where the graves are in the cemetery at the top of Pound Hill in Charlbury. L=left of the path, R=right of the path. The graves are arranged in rows, the first number is the row in from the main entrance, after the oblique stroke, the second number is how many graves it is from the path. So L23/4 is a grave on the left of the path, 23 rows into the cemetery and the fourth grave in from the path........well, it makes sense to me.

Geoffers has helped me enormously with information about relatives in Charlbury and elsewhere and Janiegirl has information on our Eeles family which she can pass on to you.
The Leafield website - http://www.leafieldvillage.co.uk/leafield_families.htm - has heaps of information about Leafield - it even includes how many Eeles lived there in 1851.
Hope you find it of interest.:)
