We believe the Church does NOT have 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 after 1982, and we understand it is still open.

The Catholic Church of St Maximilian with St Edith Stein & the Holocaust Martyrs is a modern rectangular building, having sides of 6 bays, with rectangular windows, a plain front, with a cross on the left, and doorway to the right of centre. The gable above the doorway is clad in barge-board, and there is a pantile roof.

An account of its building, and dedication, was the subject of an article in The Catholic Herald of 12th October 2001. The article explains how the present building replaced an earlier Territorial Army hut, which is said to have opened around the time of Maximilian Kolbe's canonisation, 15 years prior to the article. The chapel was originally dedicated to St Maximilian Kolbe, but this has now been extended to include Edith Stein and the Holocaust Martyrs.

St Maximilian (sometimes spelled "Maksymilian") Kolbe was canonised by Pope John Paul II on 10th October 1982.


Now or formerly Roman Catholic.

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