Churchyard history

The churchyardThe churchyard of St Leonard's is closed to new burials (although we have plenty of room for the interment of ashes after a cremation; contact us for more details)

The population of our churchyard is thoroughly documented thanks to the dedicated and thorough work of local historian Anne Petrie who has produced a written record of legible inscriptions on graves and tombs. Anne has provided a copy of her work to the church and the Hythe Local History Group. If you'd like to consult a guide to the graves, click here and follow the link to "Church". A more recent project has been to photograph all the graves in the churchyard.

Maintenance of this churchyard is the responsibility of the District Council, supported by a team of local volunteers who meet regularly on Wednesday mornings to ensure this tranquil space in the Hythe conservation area is kept tidy.
