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 13th century, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1923 records that St Nicholas's Church was rebuilt, with the exception of the tower, in 1847. It is described as "a building of stone in the Decorated style, consisting of chancel, nave, aisles, porch and an embattled western tower with pinnacles, containing a clock and 6 bells". A few modern mural tablets, removed from the chancel at the time of the restoration were transferred to the north aisle. An oak reredos was added in 1912.

The British Listed Buildings website provides the additional details that the original church is early 13th century, and was altered and extended in the 14th and 15th century. The restoration, between 1846 and 1850 was by R.C. Carpenter for Thomas Thorp, Archdeacon of Bristol.

Under the provisions of the "United Parishes Act, 1882", a detached part of Ashchurch was added to Kemerton; and in 1931, Kemerton was transferred from Gloucestershire to Worcestershire. Accordingly its Listed Building account is recorded under Worcestershire.


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.

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Kemerton, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole. The links also serve as a reminder to myself as to where I found the information, and as an adjunct to my own research, if I found a topic of particular interest.
