|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
St Nicholas is the ancient Parish Church of Stevenage. The Saxon church on this site was replaced by a Norman one in about 1100 AD, but the only remaining part of this is the great, thick-walled flint tower. The church structure has been partially rebuilt so many times that it is a patchwork of nine centuries of local endeavour.
As the New Town was developed after the Second World War, more churches were built and now the town is divided into nine Anglican parishes.The church stands next to Weston Road Cemetery. There are 15 wargraves in the churchyard but none in the cemetery.[text by Geoffrey Gillon]
