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 before 1558, and we understand it is still open.

Remnants of "old England" still survive in Findern today, in the shape of a Village Green ("The Green"), and a Common ("Common Piece Lane", yet it is just a short distance from the busy A38 Burton on Trent to Derby Road.

All Saints Church is set back from The Green, and dates from 1863. It replaced an earlier building of the same dedication. Remains of the earlier chapel include two bells, dated 1704 and 1841, an incised slab to Isabella de Fynderne d.1444, the wife of Sir Henry de Bothe [Booth], and the font dated 1666. The church plate, which dates from 1564-5 is said to be the earliest in the county. The remains of the tympanum over the old north doorway have been built into the north aisle.

The churchyard is probably now closed as there is a separate Cemetery a short distance away in Common Piece Lane.

The register dates from 1558 but "the ink is much faded and the writing in many places illegible; down to 1660 it is a copy of an older book" [Source: Kelly's Directory of Derbyshire (1932)]

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
