Grave of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, All Saints Church, Minstead
Arthur Conan Doyle died in 1930 but he was not buried at Minstead until 1955. As he was a devoted Spiritualist, he was first buried in an upright position in the garden of his home at Crowborough in East Sussex. When the house was sold early in 1955 he and his wife were moved to Minstead. Conan Doyle's interest in spiritualism was a mild embarrassment to the Church. Ever prepared to compromise, the Church of England agreed he could come to the churchyard - but buried his remains by the far boundary.
