Hello Terry,
Sorry for having kept you in suspense for so long. However, I have been quite busy. I am pleased to now provide transcriptions of the Blanchfield inscriptions recorded in Graiguenamanagh cemeteries. The first of these are in the burial ground attached to Duiske Abbey, formerly a cistercian foundation but long the R.C. parish church.

1) "Erected by Leonard Blanchfield in memory of his father Pierce Blanchfield, dep'd Feb. 1st, 1822, aged 74 yrs, also his brother James Blanchf'd, dep'd Dec. 15th ,1809 aged 22 yrs.; his sister, Catherine Blanchf'd, dep'd June 10th., 1809 age 24 yrs., Also the above named Leonard Blanchf'd, who dep'd this life 14th May, 1836 aged 44 yrs, Also his wife, Ann Blanch'fd, dep'd this life Feb'y 22nd , 1840, aged 40 yrs.."

2) "Erected by James Blanchfield in memory of his father, Andrew Blanchfield who dep'd this life May 6th, 1804, aged 80 yrs. Also his mother Margaret Blanchfield who died Jan. 20th , 1816, aged 68 years. And his sister, Mary Blanchfield, who dep'd this life Dec'r 12th, 1835, aged 50 yrs. Also his brother, Leonard Blanchfield, who died Feb'r 1st , 1845, aged 72 yrs. The above James Blanchfield, who dep'd this life Nov'r 11th, 1847, aged 68 yrs.."

3) A Tierney Stone: " Sacred to the memory of Mary Tierney, alias Blanchfield, who dep'd this life July -- 18, aged 21? years. Also her mother Catherine Blanchfield, alias O'Donnell, who dep'd this life July 26th, 1850, aged 71 yrs. Also her father, James Blanchfield, who dep'd this life July, 17th, 1855, aged 88 yrs."

4 ) A Murphy Stone " Here lieth the body of George Murphy who dep'd this life Aug. 10th, 1797, aged 59 yrs. Also his wife Bridget Murphy, al's Blanchfield, who dep'd this life July 15th, 1793, aged 52 yrs.."

In Calvary Cemetery, opened in 1955, there is one BLANCHFIELD memorial:-

5) " In loving memory of William Blanchfield, Ballyogan, died 4 Aug, 1965 aged 82 yrs. His wife Sarah died 15 Oct. 1980 aged 88 yrs."

These appear to be all of the memorials commemorating members of the Blanchfield family in Graiguenamanagh parish
which were readable in 1988-89.
