Search St. Peter Churchyard:

Snailwell is a small village and civil parish in East Cambridgeshire, England just north of Newmarket.
Listed as Sneillewelle in around 1050, and Snelleuuelle in the Domesday Book of 1086, the village's name means "spring or stream infested with snails" or perhaps "sluggish stream". The spring in question may well be that in the north west of the parish that is the source of the River Snail.
There has been a church in Snailwell since at least the 11th century and the present parish church dates from this period. Now dedicated to St Peter it was dedicated to St Andrew in the 13th century.
