St Lawrence Churchyard

The churchyard surrounding St Lawrence church is over 4.5 acres in size, and has over 1700 known graves. It is believed that many thousands of local people have been buried here through the centuries as there has been a church or chapel on this site since at least 1200.

Over 200 trees are growing in the churchyard, ranging from very tall Corsican Pine trees to the short Irish Yews that border the main path through the churchyard. Maintained by volunteers and relatives of those interred there, the funding for any maintenance or improvements comes directly from St Lawrence Church, and any donations they receive for the Churchyard.

WWI Roll of Honour board.
Inside the Church are two Roll of Honour boards for locals who died in the World Wars. Further information can also be found on the website Roll of Honour Bovingdon, © 2003 - Transcribed Carolynn Langley; researched Martin Edwards. It is intended to set up a separate free-space page (on WikiTree) for the Honour boards to list the deceased named on these.

I have fond memories of this church, where the churchyard is. My brother was married there.
