Search Saint Brelade Churchyard:

The original churchyard surrounding the Parish Church in St Brelade’s Bay was extended in 1851, at which time the Norman Arch was erected and the Strangers’ section in the northern part of the churchyard was laid out. In 2893 the realignment of the road allowed the west side of the churchyard to be enlarged. During World War I German Prisoners of War from the Blanche Banques Camp at St Ouen were buried in the Strangers’ section. The German forces used this same part of the cemetery to bury their dead during the Occupation of Jersey in WW 2. Such was the extent of the burials that in 1943 a new cemetery was opened on the côtil opposite the church. In 1961 all the German soldiers were exhumed and reburied in the German Military Cemetery at Mont de Huisnes, France. The churchyard is now closed for all new burials.
