The Old Graveyard at Tring
When the old churchyard got full in Victorian times a new plot was opened in 1853 next to what was then the Rectory Garden. This rapidly filled with burials and when I arrived in Tring in the mid 1960s this was a solid sea of gravestones. Shortly afterwards the area was developed and the graveyard was opened up as an open space in 1973 - and only a few of the gravestones were retained.

The Tring & District Local History Society produced a booklet in about 2005 listing the surviving graves, and (surnames only) the graves removed in 1973.
