The Anglican Churchyard closed to new burials some years ago.
A "New Cemetery" was established on Church Drive adjacent to the churchyard cemetery.
The vicar at St. Giles is responsible for keeping the plans and records of the old cemetery and the parish clerk keeps the records and plans of the New Cemetery.
"SANDIACRE is a village, in the small parish of its name, in the same hundred as Ilkeston, about four miles, south, from that town, & about nine, east, from Derby, situate close to the western boundary of the county of Nottingham. A market and fair was formerly held in the village, but at present little importance belongs to it as a place of trade."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
The M1 Motorway runs just west of the village. The parish borders on Nottinghamshire to the east and covers 1,090 acres.
