Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded in 1872, and we understand it is still open.

Quote from Cirencester Baptist Church website: ( History:
"The town cemetery at Chesterton opened in 1872 and since then Baptists have opted to be buried there or in Stratton cemetery. Funeral practices have changed and there is a choice of cremation or burial now."

The Cotswold District Council website provides the information that this was in May 1872. The other cemetery for Cirencester is to the north of the town, at Stratton, and that opened in July 1888. See the council's website for information about burial records for the cemeteries, which are held with the Council's Cemeteries Services Section, Trinity Road, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 1PX, and not at the cemeteries themselves.
