Burnham Road Cemetery, Malmesbury, Wiltshire, England
We discovered this graveyard as we were out walking with a friend around Malmesbury. There are no notices giving any details of whom it belongs to now or in the past. We read some posts on the 'Malmesbury Now and Then' Facebook group which suggests it was the former burial ground for a few local non-conformist churches - the Methodist, Baptist and Congregational churches. Another post informs us it is now owned by a Trust and the site is tidied three times a year.
There is no building on the site and on the two occasions we visited, although the grounds were rather untidy, it was mostly just long grass and wild flowers. If it were neglected it would be full of brambles and old growth and in a lot worse state. Other photographs we have seen show the grass neat, so we think we must have just timed our visits badly!
As far as we know we have photographed all the gravestones that are currently there but we think there would have been more burials. Judging by the spaces between the stones there could be many more plots - perhaps they never had stones or maybe they have been removed or fallen flat and the grass grown over them.
