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 before 1603, and we understand it is still open.

At the time of Lewis's Topographical Dictionary of 1831, Tresham was a chapelry in the parish of Hawkesbury; however by 1923, according to Kelly's Directory of that year:

Tresham and Saddlewood form a chapelry annexed to Alderley. The chapel at Tresham, rebuilt and consecrated in May, 1855, is a small edifice of stone in the Norman style, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch and a western turret containing one bell: a reredos was erected in 1908, and the chapel is seated with open benches affording 50 sittings: in the churchyard stands the base and shaft of an ancient cross. The register dates from the year 1603.

Tresham Church is now a Grade II Listed Building - see British Listed Buildings website for details (recorded with Hillesley).

The following information about the Church has been provided to accompany the photographs on the right. A list of people who have supplied the information is included in the Acknowledgements, below.

[Image 1] This Church does not have a dedication, but is provided for the convenience of Tresham inhabitants, as a Chapel of Ease to the parish church of St Kenelm's, 2 miles away in Alderley. According to Kelly's Directory of 1923, its parish registers start in 1603.[1]

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.
