When did the cemetery close?

We know the cemetery has now closed but do yet know when this happened. Information is required about the denomination listed above, rather than whether the cemetery is still in use although by another group of people. If the name of denomination has changed, but the congregation remains the same e.g. from Wesleyan Methodist to Methodist, then don't treat that as a closure.

If the cemetery changes location, frequently because of lack of space, then we have a different database entry for the other location with separate founding and closing dates. So if they moved from this location, enter the year they moved as the closing date. We tie them together by giving them them the same Genuki church web page.
