Where they Lie: Nugent Graves records what is known of Nugent graves in Antigua and elsewhere and details the recent restoration (September 2011) of the graves of Sir Oliver and Lady Nugent at St George’s Church, Fitches Creek.  Also, in January 2012 the graves of their son and daughter-in-law Oliver and Mary Nugent at St John’s municipal cemetery were restored and the page updated with new pictures courtesy of Jan Augustin.
