Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded in 1884, but we don't know whether or not it is still open.

This may be the burial ground associated with St Mark's Church at Handley, or perhaps for a much wider area. The nearest 'old' settlement is Woolley Moor. It is not clear whether it is still open, but it looks to be a pleasing resting place.

It is listed in Derbyshire Record Office's catalogue of Cemetery Records as Stretton Cemetery, and a transcription of memorials exists for the period 1884-1997. Kelly's Directory of 1932 records the cemetery as being of half an acre, with two mortuary chapels, under the control of a burial board of six members.


Now or formerly a Cemetery.

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


This Cemetery is/was located at OS grid reference SK3813361392. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:
