Church History

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

Painswick Cemetery is situated on the hillside above the town, with spectacular views across the Golf Course and the Stroud Valleys. According to Kelly's Directory of 1923 it was laid out in 1863 on a site of 4 acres, with mortuary chapels, at a cost of £1,300. It was originally under the governance of a burial board of 8 members, but was later adopted by the town, and is now in the care of Painswick Parish Council.
