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 the 13th century, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1923 describes All Saints Church as "an edifice in the Early English style consisting of chancel, nave of two bays, north aisle and south transept, mortuary chapel, south porch and a western tower, containing 5 bells, and surmounted by a spire 120 feet in height". In the church is an ancient tomb of a Knight Templar and some interesting monuments, and in the mortuary chapel is a curious triple window of the 13th century, said to have been brought from Salisbury cathedral. The porch, which is unusually large, was built in the time of Henry III. (1216-72). Over the entrance is a beautiful Norman arch with the chevron ornament.

Other points of interest in the village in 1923 were a Crusader's cross, designed by Mr. A. Lawson, of Cirencester, which was erected in the village by Lord Biddulph, as a memorial to 13 men of the parish who fell in the Great War 1914-1918. The parish was partly supplied with water from a well belonging to the Great Western Railway Company; and the principal landowners were Lord Biddulph, D.L., J.P., who was lord of the manor, and William Price Jones esq. The living was a vicarage, and had been held by the Rev. Aneurin Gabe-Jones, B.A. of St David's College, Lampeter since 1914.

Ewall (or Ewen) is a hamlet 1 mile east of the village.

Kemble was formerly in Wiltshire, but in 1897 was transferred to Gloucestershire. One of the sources of the Thames is in the parish.


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.
