|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Parish Church of St. Andrew, Wimpole stands next to the National Trust Property Wimpole Hall in Wimpole Park.
The church is normally open on a daily basis from around 09.30hrs and closes at around 17.00hrs. The churchyard is open at all reasonable times.
The current church replaces an earlier fourteenth century building that was largely demolished in 1748 as part of the landscaping of Wimpole Park. The medieval north chapel, now dedicated to the Chicheley family, the builders of Wimpole Hall, is all that remains of the original structure.
The present building was completed in 1749.
There is 1 Commonwealth burial of the 1914-1918 war here.
