St. John's Churchyard, Woking, Surrey.
St John's is a village located some 3 km west of the centre of the town of Woking in Surrey, England. Neighbouring communities include Goldsworth Park, Hook Heath, Horsell, and Knaphill.
The village lies on the Basingstoke Canal (completed in 1794) and dates largely from the 19th century, when housing first began to be constructed in the area to accommodate workers employed at the local brickworks. The village gained its name from the Church of St John the Baptist, built here in 1842 from designs prepared by Sir George Gilbert Scott.The closed churchyard and burial ground at St Johns churchyard is maintained by Serco, on behalf of Woking Borough Council.
