Rectory Lane Cemetery, Berkhamsted

Diocese of Rochester

Since Norman times, church parishes in most of Hertfordshire had been part of the Diocese of Lincoln, a vast ecclesiastical territory that stretched from the Humber to the edge of London. 

In 1846, a reorganisation in the Church of England transfers Hertfordshire parishes, including Great Berkhamsted, from the Diocese of Lincoln to the Diocese of Rochester.
