Burial Ground Information

The Long Melford Burial Ground is located beside Holy Trinity Church, at the top of The Green, Long Melford.  The site is owned and maintained by the Parish Council.
An interesting point to note for those looking at headstones to the rear of the church – There is a very large number of wrought iron headstones (more than any other church in Europe that we know of).  This is because the local foundry allowed the workforce to make their own headstones at the company forge during their down time.  This accounts for the varying artistic capability, and the hugely varied look.
