|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Church of St Peter at Parham sits in a strange position on the lawns in front of the fabulous Tudor mansion of Parham House.
The church used to serve the village of Parham, but the village has now completely disappeared from view.
Towards the end of the 18th century there was a small but apparently thriving Parham village alongside St Peter's Church. The village was cleared some time in the 19th century, ostensibly for reasons of "hygiene" but more realistically to allow the Estate at Parham to be enclosed, forming the lovely deer park which can be seen today.
