|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
I wonder if you created this cemetery and could add a historical description of it. I have edited what the friends of Woodbury Park have written.
Until 1829, Tunbridge Wells was in the parish of Tonbridge and most inhabitants were buried either at Tonbridge, Speldhurst or Frant.
In 1829 the Parish of Holy Trinity was created with a churchyard. This was full by 1849, and Trinity Cemetery (now called Woodbury Park Cemetery) was opened. However by the 1870's the three acres of the cemetery were virtually full. Thereafter the only interments allowed were of relatives in existing graves. The last interment was in 1934.
In 1873 the Tunbridge Wells Cemetery in Hawkenbury was opened (now called the Kent and Sussex Cremetorium and Cemetery).
