St. Mary’s Churchyard

St Mary’s Churchyard is closed for burials, except where there is space in an existing plot. No new plots for burials or for the interment of ashes can be permitted.

We have established a Garden of Remembrance near the church for the burial of ashes. No plaques or other markers are permitted, but there is a Book of Remembrance inside the church in which details of those buried can be recorded.

The Churchyard is of area of local history, heritage and natural history interest. We are grateful to visitors for respecting this special place. Recent visitors included Roe Deer.

A new tree, Quercus Palustris also called the Pin Oak has been planted in the churchyard in memory of Queen Elizabeth II.

It was her wish to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee 2022 by having oak trees planted throughout the UK to form The Queen’s Green Canopy.

This is part of Langley’s living legacy for future generations and visitors to the churchyard.
