Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded in 1865, and we understand it is still open.

Old Maps, for instance OS 1886 1:2,500 show that Upton Cemetery with two Mortuary Chapels. One is Nonconformist; the other is Church of England, designed by local architect George Rowe Clarke, and erected in 1867. The British Listed Buildings account (they are Grade II) says that Clarke was buried to the south east of the chapels in 1908.

The surrounding area is marked "Buryfield" well into the 20th century. Directly behind the Cemetery, to the east was the Union Workhouse. The remainder of the surrounding area appears to have been orchard, as for instance to the south, a plot is labelled "Soley's Orchard", and following Rectory Road south was Buryend Farm. Since then, the area has been developed for housing.


Now or formerly a Cemetery.

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