I am assuming that this area is open for people to visit?

When I first stopped by here I blindly wandered round and pondered the fence for a while and the locked door spent some time in the churchyard before actually realising I had been all over someones garden - oh well no harm done

My first reaction to the memorial to those now underneath a private garden was disgust, I am not sure I have got over that reaction yet...  Although I know that buildings need to be reused to retain them.  Just seems a shame that not all of those buried there are rememebred, and that it seems some war graves were also lost.

Anyway...

This memorial provided by the Diocese of Canterbury in 2009 records the names of those buried in that part of the churchyard now a private garden and whose previous memorials were displaced.
