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 1844, and we understand it is still open.

At the time of Kelly's Directory of 1923, Woodmancote was described as a chapelry of Dursley. The Directory also records that St Mark's was erected in 1844 as a chapel of ease, and that it has (had) an endowment of £60 yearly, derived from a house and land left by Henry Vizard, Esq. of Dursley.

The graveyard of St Mark's, 1½ acres adjacent to the chapel, became the parish churchyard after St James's Church burial ground closed in the late 1850s.

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.
