Working on some scenery as well, you can't be without a graveyard can you?   ;)

That's taking shape rather nicely. What about a lychgate entrance?  They always look suitably creepy.

I hadn't thought of that. That's a very good idea, thanks!   :)

I think it would really set it off.

Yes, it's getting better and better!  :-*

Mad Lord, when the graveyard is finished, you'll need a suitable gravedigger, a couple of body snatchers and maybe an old underground crypt with a gorgeous vampiress in a marble sarcophagus...  ;)

Front Rank Miniatures have a pack of C18th civilians. One wearing a smock with a shovel and one holding a pick in a stocking cap.

http://www.frontrank.com/product-category/18th-century/18th-century-equipment/

If you want C17th, what about some labourers from an ECW range, Can't think of any off hand but there must be some artillery crew types that could work?

How about these from Redoubt?

Thanks, those Redoubt civilians look fine, I'll get those. A couple of them will do very nicely as grave diggers, the rest can be tinners on the moor.

Malamute was right on spot as usual with the Redoubt minis; but a couple of suggestions:  

Body Snatchers/Gravediggers from Casting Room; more victorian than 17th Century but can be used because their are more easily recognizable as "night workers":

 


This gravedigger from Reaper is "atemporal" and full of character IMHO:
