|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Although the signboard describes it as Trumpington Churchyard [Extension] it is in fact a church cemetery. An extension churchyard is contiguous with an original churchyard-and there is already an extension churchyard adjacent to the original at the church.
A "church cemetery" describes those burial grounds where there is a new piece of land, not adjoining the existing churchyard, and which has been consecrated as an addition to the church's burial space.They are usually secular in nature, and such is the case with Trumpington.
It is now maintained by Cambridge City Council.
