In 1841, an orchard and meadow behind Egerton House on the High Street were put up for auction. The St Peter’s vestry sanctioned the purchase of a new Parish Burial Ground.
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.
