The cemetery was established in 1887.
The name Charing first appears in 799 as Ciorrincg. The name probably comes from the Anglo-Saxon word 'cerring', which means a bend in the road, or it may be from Ceorra-ingas, which is Anglo-Saxon, meaning people of Ceorra.
Its most famous building is the Archbishop's Palace, which lies by the church and was an ancient possession of the Archbishop of Canterbury. It has been a farmhouse for the last 300 years. The church of St Peter and St Paul, just along the road from the cemetery, is said to contain the stone on which John the Baptist was beheaded.
