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 before 1603, and we understand it is still open.

At the time of Lewis's Topographical Dictionary of 1831, Tresham was a chapelry in the parish of Hawkesbury; however by 1923, according to Kelly's Directory of that year:

Tresham and Saddlewood form a chapelry annexed to Alderley. The chapel at Tresham, rebuilt and consecrated in May, 1855, is a small edifice of stone in the Norman style, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch and a western turret containing one bell: a reredos was erected in 1908, and the chapel is seated with open benches affording 50 sittings: in the churchyard stands the base and shaft of an ancient cross. The register dates from the year 1603.

Tresham Church is now a Grade II Listed Building - see the British Listed Buildings website for details (recorded with Hillesley).
