Cemetery notes and/or description:
There has been some manner of church on the present site of St. John's since the 10th century. The current church dates back to the 13th century. The tower is 14th century and possesses a peal of six bells that date from the 17th and 18th centuries.

Whitchurch is a good sized village about five miles outside Aylesbury. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book (Wicherce) and its origins go back to Anglo-Saxon times. It's stone "white" church gave Whitchurch it's name. The current church is one that was rebuilt from the original (@1000ad) in 1300s.

The church is set in a large attractive churchyard and is accessible by three lanes: Church Lane, Church Headland Lane, and White Horse Lane. The footpath that leads up to the church and its grounds between itself and the vicarage also leads out into the fields. The church in Whitchurch is also used by residents of Creslow since their church was no longer used after the 16th century.

As of May 6, 2013...the footpath that leads to the front of the church and then into the cemetery is lined by trees and the yard is well maintained with wild flowers blooming and vibrant green grass. It is a beautiful, peaceful churchyard.
