|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
St Nicholas Church of Oddington Gloucestershire, England, is one of the oldest extant Norman churches in England. This Medieval church with its dramatic doom paintings was likely built at the center of an early Norman settlement circa 1080. It was expanded about 1250 and was in regular use until 1852. The earliest surviving recorded burial is in the year 1549.
The cemetery surrounding it has stones from several centuries, however, due to time,weathering and decay, many are no longer legible. There are also many burials which are no longer marked by a headstone.
The surrounding is a woodland countryside, and the cemetery is reached via a narrow unpaved path .The setting is lush and serene. Local residents often choose this location still as their final resting place and new interments continue.
