Church History

We don't know when this Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded, but we understand it is still open.

Brimscombe Cemetery is set on a hillside overlooking the town, with views north across the Frome valley to the opposite hillside. There is an area for Green Burials, at the top of the site adjacent to open country. [Source: details of Green Burials on Stroud District Council website]

Now or formerly a Cemetery.

In most cases this will be a record of its original consecration.

Resources

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 Brimscombe, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.

Search Tips:

You can specify either a Place, or OS Grid Reference to search for. When you specify a Place, only entries for that place will be returned, with Places of Worship listed in alphabetical order. If you specify a Grid Reference, Places of Worship in the immediate vicinity will be listed, in order of distance from the Grid Reference supplied. The default is to list 10, but you can specify How Many you want to see, up to a maximum of 100.

You can further refine your search by supplying other search terms.

Please note the above provides a search of selected fields in the Gloucestershire section of the Places of Worship Database on this site (churchdb.gukutils.org.uk) only. For other counties, or for a full search of the Database, you might like to try the site's Google Custom Search, which includes full webpage content.
