Graveyard plan

There is currently no central record of surviving gravestones in the churchyards at Gt Bromley.  The register of deaths and burials can be traced via Essex Record Office or a variety of online sources. 

Update 2021: Local volunteers do hope to make a Graveyard Plan when time allows, and would be grateful of monetary donations for restorative and investigatory work, as well as any volunteered time to help.

Guide for visitors to the churchyard

There are two graveyards. The one surrounding the church is current and is normally reasonably well tended, as Parochial Church Council funding allows. The one the other side of the road is disused, and is know as the closed graveyard. It is no longer in the care of the church, and is maintained by the Great Bromley Parish Council.

There are two distinct sections to the closed graveyard: the southern end has numerous marked graves and these are tended as well as Parish Council funding allows; the northern end (left of the gate as you walk in) has only very few grave markers to be found nowadays and it is designated as a wildlife site.
