Search St Mary New Churchyard:

The New Zealand Command Depot was established at Codford in June 1916 and the No 3 New Zealand General Hospital followed in July. The New Churchyard was established by deed of gift as the "Military Burial Ground," with a small part reserved for future burials from the parish.

The war graves plot contains 98 burials, mostly of New Zealand and Australian forces.

There is only one burial of the Second World War in the New Churchyard.

The village was formed from the two parishes of Codford St Mary and Codford St Peter. The two adjacent villages grew together and their union was formalised in 1928
with the approval of the union of the benefice of the two Codfords. Six years later the two parishes became one. Both churches however are still in use today.
