In 1876 part of the churchyard was combined with burial grounds of the nearby Wesleyan Chapel to create St George's Gardens, which opened as a public garden in 1877. Headstones were generally moved to the perimeter and the new layout included a Rectors Walk and Lime Avenue. A disused mortuary building in the garden was for a time used as a popular Nature Study Centre and Museum that opened in 1904. The garden was restored and re-opened in 2008.
