Southminster Congregational Chapel Cemetery
Maldon District
Essex  England

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Southminster is an historic village sited in the centre of the ancient Dengie Hundred (on the Dengie peninsula) in the Maldon district of Essex in the East of England. It lies about three miles north of Burnham-on-Crouch and ten miles south-east of Maldon town. Isolated 20 miles from Chelmsford, the nearest large town, the town would be very much in decline if it were not for Southminster railway station and employment opportunities at the nearby Bradwell nuclear power station.. A major horse market used to be held annually in the village. Southminster marshes were a
favourite centre for hare coursing in Victorian times. Pandole Wood contains ancient earthworks believed to date from the iron age. The earliest record is in 825AD when the village was known as Sudmynstre. The Southminster Congregational Chapel Cemetery lies to the north of the town about half a mile from the newish church-now the United Reform Church. The burial ground is well-maintained but many old headstones have been removed and can be found under the boundary hedgerows. There are two wargraves here. (text by Geoffrey Gillon)
