Notes about the burial ground

For anyone intending to visit this church be aware that it lies about 400 metres from the road. Access is via a wide track which has been extensively churned up by agricultural vehicles. It is driveable but in wet conditions it may be wiser to park the car and walk unless you have 4-wheel drive. Some gravestones illustrated here are illegible but their information has been collated from personal observation, the churchyard grave plan (displayed within the church), Norfolk online records and other sources. Many graves on the plan are just unmarked patches of grass and are not included here, though I may be able to include some in future. For more information about this church visit Simon Knott's website at
