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 1066, and we understand it is still open.

The Domesday Book records there was a church at Sudbury. Possibly this was a wooden building, which would have been replaced by a stone building in Norman times. The double chamfered arches on either side of the central aisle suggests the church was rebuilt about 1300. About 1400 the pitch of the nave roof was altered to accomodate clerestory windows.

Unlike churches elsewhere there do not appear to have been substantial modifications when Sudbury Hall was built, in the 17th century, so the church retains many of its original medieval features. All Saints Church is however a Grade II Listed Building - see British Listed Buildings website for details. [Source: Rosemary Lockie, from church information leaflet]
