Search St Mary of Charity Churchyard:


The first written mention of Faversham church comes in 1070, but there was probably a church by the 9th century. The crown spire of the existing church was added in 1794-7 by the architect Charles Beazley, who was inspired by St Dunstan-in-the-East church, built by Sir Christopher Wren. The dedication to St Mary of Charity is one of the surviving links with Faversham Abbey whose mother church in France was dedicated to St Mary of Charity. The churchyard is large and has been extended twice over the centuries. In 1898 the Faversham Borough Cemetery opened in Love lane. Except where space had already been reserved, burials in the churchyard ceased from 1 January 1906.
