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 12th century, and we understand it is still open.

St Michael & All Angels Church is a Grade I Listed Building - see the British Listed Buildings website for details. Kelly's Directory of 1923 describes it as "a building of stone, in the Norman and later styles, consisting of chancel, clerestoried nave of two bays, south aisle, transepts, south porch, and an embattled western tower, with pinnacles and spire, containing a clock and 6 bells". There are 2 memorial windows, to Miss Mills and Mr. & Mrs. Grizzell, both formerly of the Manor House.

There is a gabled cross of local stone, erected by public subscription in the churchyard, in memory of those connected with the parish who fell in the Great War, 1914-18. The British Listed Building site records that a carved reredos in the Chancel is also a Memorial of the War.

In 1923, the living was a rectory with the perpetual curacy of Snowshill annexed, held since 1922 by the Rev. Thomas Wilfrid Reynolds, M.A. of St John's College, Oxford. Kelly also mentions a swimming bath, which was erected in 1912 at the expense of Sir Philip S. Stott, bart., who was then resident at Stanton Court. Note: the Manor House and Stanton Court are separate properties.

The Jackson Tomb in the churchyard is Grade II Listed. There is a record of its inscriptions included in Some Memorial Inscriptions at Stanton, recorded by Alf Beard.
