Cemeteries

This Church 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 12th century, but we understand it was closed in 1974.

Kelly's Directory of 1923 records that Little Washbourne as a hamlet, for ecclesiastical purposes attached to the parish of Overbury (Worcs.), in the rural deanery of Bredon and archdeaconry and diocese of Worcester. St Mary's was built as chapel of ease of St Faith's, and described as "a small edifice, consisting only of chancel and nave". A burial ground was formed in 1913. "The children from Great Washbourne attend school at Beckford & Little Washbourne attend at Alderton"

Little Washbourne was transferred to Gloucestershire in 1844, created a civil parish in 1866, retaining a separate identity until 1935, when it was merged with the parish of Dumbleton. In this respect, its fortunes mirror that of Alstone, though the latter was merged with Teddington. St Mary's Church was closed on 26rh September 1974, and is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
