ST PETER’S CHURCH NEWNHAM GRAVEYARD WALK

Take a stroll through some of Newnham’s Social History with this graveyard guide.  Visit some of the gravestones and memorials of people who have lived and died in Newnham over more than three hundred years with a short explanation for each one.  Pick up a free leaflet from the church and go and explore.

Churchyard Map  designed by Sandra and Graham Champken.

THIS HAS NOW BEEN REINSTATED  IN THE CHURCH SO IS AVAILABLE WHILE THE CHURCH IS OPEN.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE INFORMATION, PLEASE CALL NIGEL HAIG 01594 516545

Newnham History Group has over the past four years, created a detailed map of the entire churchyard, which will enable visitors with Newnham links to find their ancestors more easily.  The main map is complemented by a number of enlarged sections (which are easier on the eyesight) and a spreadsheet name index (arranged in alphabetical order of surname) which contains the names of more than 2,000 people commemorated on gravestones.  These items will be displayed permanently in the church.

 Communion If you, or anyone you know, cannot get to church but would like to receive communion at home, please let one of the churchwardens know.  Church wardens: 516716 or 516476
