When the churchyard of St Martin’s Church became full Beatrice Mary, Countess of Portsmouth, donated a plot of land adjacent to the church grounds for use as a Parish Burial Ground in 1933.
It was further extended a some years later by another donation of a strip of land in 1987 by Basil de Ferranti.

 

Then in 2020 Marcus and Lucinda Rule donated a further strip of land. The photograph below shows the enlarged burial ground.
