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 10th century, and we understand it is still open.

Daylesford is on the border of Gloucestershire with Oxfordshire. It was a detached parish of Worcestershire until 1931, so researchers should be aware that it will be found under the county of Worcester in reference sources published prior to then. It was subsequently transferred to Gloucestershire, where it remained a separate parish until 1935, when it became part of the civil parish of Adlestrop.

Ecclesiastically, its ties with Worcestershire have been renewed in the present day, as it is part of a united benefice of the Parish Churches of Kingham and Daylesford, and Churchill with Sarsden. Their website provides a leaflet which can be downloaded, providing a history of the Church, from its earliest known origins as a pre-conquest church, its reconstruction by Warren Hastings in 1816, and its rebuilding in 1860, to a design by architect J.L. Pearson (a "hidden high Victorian gem"), through to the present day, with its uncertain future as a redundant church.

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.
