Melbourn is a large village in the far south west of Cambridgeshire, England. It is located next to the A10 just north of Royston. Melbourn has Royston, Hertfordshire post codes.
The name Melbourn comes from Meldeburn, the "stream of a man named Melde"
There are three places of worship-Anglican, Baptist and URC.
There is also a Methodist churchyard with graves.
The URC Chapelyard is actually in three parts-there are burials in the grounds of the chapel and there is a smaller plot, rather unkempt,on the same side of the road across Meeting Lane, but the largest burial ground is opposite the Chapel.
The following information kindly provided January 2016 by Barry Monk-Melbourn URC.
• 1717 - Meeting House (Chapel which they now use – much modified) erected
• 1865 - Large Chapel (within the current burial ground) constructed
• 1953 – use of Large Chapel for worship ceased and the congregation returned to the original “Meeting House”
• 1959 – Large Chapel building demolished.
