London, Greater London, England

Brief Description

Extended a number of times to accommodate more burials, the churchyard is now closed, and has over 1,000 memorials. Trees include a number of yews and other conifers.

History

The modest flint church of St Mary the Blessed Virgin dates back to at least the 11th century and its burial ground is also centuries old. There are many associations with the Archbishops of Canterbury who lived at Addington Palace from the early-19th century and a memorial in the churchyard commemorates Archbishops buried here.
