SP9211 : Cobbled Path and Old Cemetery Wall, Tring

taken 5 years ago, near to Tring, Hertfordshire, Great Britain

Cobbled Path and Old Cemetery Wall, Tring
Cobbled Path and Old Cemetery Wall, Tring
This path runs between the main churchyard and what was the Rectory garden. The Wall is possibly only surviving wall built round the extension cemetery in 1855, the near end being the site of the gateway into the cemetery.
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.
