|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The village of Burnham Market has two Anglican parish churches and that of Burnham Norton is on the northern outskirts. The largest is St. Mary's at Burnham Westgate while All Saints' Church at the eastern end of the town is known as Sutton-cum-Ulph because it incorporated the parish and some of the stone of St. Ethelbert's at Burnham Sutton, some four hundred yards to the south, when Horatio Nelson's father Edmund was rector of both churches in the 1760s and 70s. These three parishes, with the parishes of Burnham Overy and Burnham Thorpe (birthplace of Nelson), form the single benefice, the Burnhams Benefice. There are three other places of worship in the village: the Roman Catholic church, St Henry Walpole, a Methodist church and a Gospel Hall.
