I think you would have to rely on village folklore handed down ,or maybe a local history society would have some knowledge of old maps which might show something.

Thanks

As the folk that contracted the Black Death Plague at Canterbury were banished to Denstroude they would have died there. I should think there would have been quite a few burial pits (not graves) in the outskirts of the village.

Thankyou Grandarog.
Yes, I had found that info, but not my area of interest. I found out that people with the Black Death were sent from anterbury too, where I used to live, which was Denstroude near Blean or Dunkirk, as they sometimes referred to it as. I just wondered if there was a burial ground in that area.

Good Luck  :)

PS If I remember rightly Dode Village was wiped out by the plague.
