East Meon
East Hampshire District
Hampshire  England

Cemetery notes and/or description:

East Meon is a village and civil parish in the East Hampshire district of Hampshire, England. It is 4.4 miles west of Petersfield.
The nearest railway station is 4 miles east of the village, at Petersfield.
The village is located in the Meon Valley approximately 19 miles north of Portsmouth and 61 miles southwest of London, on the headwaters of the River Meon.
The village church was built after the Norman Conquest, and dates between 1075 and 1150 where Andrew Renny Blackman was once Christned. It resembles Winchester Cathedral in style, and like the Cathedral, it contains a black marble baptismal font created at Tournai, in what is now Belgium, circa 1130-40. The Tournai font is one of only four such fonts in the county of Hampshire. Inside the church there is a stone, which has the words "Amens Plenty" carved into it, which is said to sit atop the graves of four men buried in the standing position.
