Stoke Poges Memorial Gardens
Sir Noel Mobbs, Lord of the Manor of Stoke Poges, acquired the twenty acres of land to the south of the church in order to preserve the tranquil and rural setting of St Giles’ church, made famous by Thomas Gray’s poem ‘Elegy in a Country Churchyard’. He wanted to create a ‘living memorial to the dead' which would bring 'solace to the bereaved’.

The Memorial Gardens were opened on 25 May 1935. They were designed by Edward White and include burial plots in 500 individual gated gardens.
