Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded in 1857, and we understand it is still open.

The Cemetery's opening date is provided by Kelly's Directory of 1923. "A cemetery of half an acre, adjoining the old churchyard, and one of a quarter of an acre for Nonconformists, on the Greet Road, were formed in 1857 at a cost of £700, and are under the control of a joint burial committee. The cemetery in Greet Road was enlarged in 1890".


Now or formerly a Cemetery.

In most cases this will be a record of its original consecration.
