A large Foundation Stone is erected at what was in 1842 the southern boundary of the cemetery. It commemorates the gifts of the Countess of Bridgewater and other benefactors, and the Cemetery consecration date is recorded here as 11th October 1842.
Rectory Lane Cemetery remains closed to the public during renovation work. However, due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 situation, we have cancelled a number of events planned for this year. We will keep everyone informed of any changes in the coming months through our Facebook page. Thank you to everyone for your continued support for this project.
