We don't know whether 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

We don't know when this Place of Worship was founded, but we understand it was closed about 1712.

Kelly's Directory of 1923 describes Sezincote as a parish 2½ miles south-west from Moreton-in-Marsh station on the Oxford and Worcester section of the Great Western railway and 27 north-east from Gloucester. "The ancient church was demolished about 1712, and has not been rebuilt". The parish register is included with that of Longborough. The living was then a rectory, attached to the vicarage of Longborough, and had been held since 1921 by the Rev. Frank Kennen, of Hatfield College, Durham, who resided at Longborough. Sezincote House - "a mansion of stone, pleasantly seated in well-wooded grounds, containing a fine sheet of water" - was the seat of Col. Arthur Dugdale C.M.G. D.S.O. J.P. The east front of the house was said to be approached through beautiful pleasure grounds.

In 1831, Samuel Lewis's Topographical Dictionary of England records that "Season Cote" contained 86 inhabitants. The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) for "Season Cote" provides the information that there were just a few farmhouses in the parish, and that the Church "long since been demolished" was dedicated to St Bartholomew. Its site may be located on Old Maps of (for instance) 1902. The land now, as then, probably belongs to Sezincote House.


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.
