Extension Burial Ground

(this is located west of the last area, down a slight bank, which presumably marks the site of a former

hedge. According to the typed ‘church guide’, shown to me by the churchwarden, Mr: Reynolds, this

ground was donated in 1921 by the Eames family. However from dates on memorials, it seems it only

started to be used from about 1925)
