Our Church has a beautiful and peaceful graveyard that many people enjoy as they walk through. It is a haven for wildlife, but also a surprisingly sociable and friendly place.

A number of people have adopted a grave to care for, with the satisfaction of making an overgrown and messy area, look loved by clearing away weeds and planting flowers or even some herbs.

Sometimes there is a connection with the past of that family’s grave. Often people like to follow it up by learning more about who was buried there. Our parish historian, Sue Stevens, is very helpful in carrying out the necessary research.

There are still more graves that would like to be adopted. It is very rewarding to continue to see the churchyard restored. Please contact Alexandra Ruffer on alex@teddingtonparish.org to take on a grave and help this community space.
