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 1846, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1932 provides the information the parish of Coton in the Elms was formed in 1866 from the parish of Lullington. St Mary's Church was erected in 1846, and is "a building of grey sandstone in the Gothic style, consisting of chancel, nave and western tower with spire, containing one small bell". There is a memorial window to Anne (Horton) d.1871, wife of Right Hon. Sir Robert Wilmot Horton bart. erected by the tenantry and parishioners of Coton as a mark of their esteem; and on the south side of the nave is another memorial window to the same lady by members of her family, presenting a likeness of herself, with a little girl, the Hon. Darea Curzon, only daughter of Robert, 14th baron Zouch. There is a third memorial window to Emily Julia (Wilmot-Horton), d.1866, wife of Lord Zouch. There is also a marble tablet to the Rev. Theodore Echalaz, vicar of Lullington, dated 1858. The church had then 246 sittings. The parish records date from 1846; earlier records are with Lullington, which date from 1560.


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.
