Rectory Lane Cemetery is now the town’s main burial ground. The churchyard next to St Peter’s which has served as the local burial ground since medieval times is closed by Order of Council on 19th October 1855.
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.
