Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded in 1863, and we understand it is still open.

Newent's Cemetery in Watery Lane was opened in the early 1860s, after St Mary's parish church graveyard was closed for burials. Its Mortuary Chapel was built by Jacques & Sons in 1863. The two acres of ground and the Lodge cost £1300. [Source: Chapters in Newent's History, published by Newent Local History Society (2003), p.22]
