Closed churchyards

We maintain a number of closed churchyards across the city. These are:

  • All Saints'
  • St Andrews
  • St Andrew's, Chesterton
  • Little St Mary's
  • Great St Mary's
  • Abbey Church
  • Christchurch
  • St Clement
  • St Peter's
  • St Giles
  • The Round Church
  • St Michael and St Mary
  • Holy Trinity

A closed churchyard is one that is no longer available for burials except to persons who have previously purchased a plot. When an act of closure is granted, the council take over the grounds maintenance, tree works for safety reasons and some minor repairs to boundary walls and path surfaces.
