The Graveyard and Burials

In 1845 the churchyard was extended by some seventeen yards to the east, a plot of land being bought from the then owner of Charney Manor for £7. The churchwardens spent £24 13s 8½d on building a wall round it.

During the C19th restoration work to the Church a forgotten vault was found under the nave. It had belonged to the Dunn family, who in the eighteenth century inherited Lyford Grange, the house in which the courageous Jesuit priest, Edmund Campion (now Saint Edmund Campion) was captured after administering an illegal Mass during the reign of Elizabeth I. Over the centuries there were other burials under the floor, for it was reported that “the church under the seats was full of bones”. The vault and a large part of the floor of the nave were concreted over.

There is one war grave, that of 9028 Private William George Franklin, maintained by the Church on behalf of the War Graves Commission.
