Search St Agatha Churchyard:

The cemetery for the parish of Pant and Llanymynech straddles the English/Welsh border, in the same way as its parish does. The church lies completely within Shropshire, with the border running through the main entrance to the churchyard and then down the middle of the busy A483. The village name translates as 'Church of the Monks' and is approximately pronounced 'llan - a - mun- ech'.

There has been a church on the site for over a millennium, with the current church of St Agatha dating from 1843 and still in use. The cemetery is in three sections. The graves round the church are in unstable ground, as can be seen from the collapse of some of the tombs. The 'new ground' was consecrated in 1896 and is accessed through a gate in the hedge behind the church. This quiet shaded spot is the location of many historic graves, including three of the four war graves at the cemetery.

With the 'new ground' now full, burials now take place in a third section, overlooked by Llanymynech Rocks. The cemetery is operated by the Parish Council.
