Cemeteries

This Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in the 12th century, and we understand it is still open.

All Saints is an intriguing building, featuring work from 12th-16th centuries, and Victorian restorations in 1853, and 1870. The Aston on Trent Village website, in its account of village history, cites evidence of any earlier church, mentioning that at the Domesday Survey, it was one of two churches sharing a priest on Weston Manor. It also mentions that the present building contains stones from the Saxon period, one "carved with interlacing preserved in the West wall adjoining the tower". This may be what Kelly's Directory of 1895 refers to as "a curious Saxon cross ... built into the exterior of the west end of the south aisle" ... which it contrasts with the lower part of the tower, which is "Late Norman, with the exception of one Transition window of the time of Henry II".

The Aston on Trent Local History Group website has a photograph of the stone.

In the present day, All Saints is one of the churches in the Trent and Derwent Parish Churches group. The other churches are Barrow on Trent, Elvaston, Shardlow, Swarkestone, Twyford and Weston on Trent.

Denomination
