Cemeteries

This Church 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 1346, but we understand it was closed after 1537.

The Prior was built by Sir Richard Talbot, Lord of Goodrich Castle, in 1346, and until the Dissolution, in 1537, housed an Order of Augustinian Monks. Thereafter ownership passed to George Talbot, 3rd Earl of Shrewsbury, and when he died in 1590 it passed to his son Gilbert. Gilbert died in 1616 without a male heir, after which the Priory moved over gradually to providing accomodation as farm buildings. Their present use is as holiday apartments - website www.flanesfordpriory.co.uk.

Herefordshire Family History Society provide a transcription of the MIs for the Priory, though it is not clear what period this covers.

Denomination

Now or formerly Augustinian.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
