Charles J. ANDERSON advises that "In addition to the graveyard at St Andrew, there is a Cemetery. The cemetery was created when the Churchyard reached capacity. The earliest stone is dated 1931. It is situated on the outskirts of the village alongside the road leading to Benniworth."
It is most likely that the civil cemetery is under the control of the parish council's Burial Board.
David HITCHBORNE has a photograph of some of the tilting gravestones at St. Andrew's on Geo-graph, taken in July, 2004. Take care when reading the inscriptions.
