Churchyard and Cemetery


The churchyard surrounding the Old Parish Church was in use for many years. The oldest legible headstone commemorates a local villager named Richard Barrat, who died in 1718 aged 35. The last burial in the churchyard was for Thomas Gelsthorpe of Annesley Woodhouse in 1881.



A new cemetery was sited near to the new church in 1872, at a cost of 1,500, and included a mortuary chapel.
