Search St Mary the Virgin Priory Churchyard:

A monastery of the Gilbertine Order, founded by Eustace FitzJohn in about 1150. Very little remains of the original buildings or The Old Priory which were let to ruin at the Dissolution.

The churchyard at St Mary the Virgin Priory Church was closed to burials in the mid 1800s. Malton Cemetery (opened 1859) and Old Malton (opened 1883) Cemetery were established under civic authorities to accommodate the burial needs of St Mary the Virgin parishioners and and other residents of the area.
