|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The church was given by a Thomas Ardern and his son, Thomas, in 1122, following the Battle of Acre where the legend of St George was adopted by the English Crusaders. Henry V was welcomed by the Aldermen of London on the steps of the church upon his return from the Battle of Agincourt, where the "Agincourt song" was written as part of the celebration. It is believed the current church is the third to be built on the site.
