Cemetery notes and/or description:
Charing is a village in the Ashford District of Kent, in south-east England. It is situated at the foot of the North Downs to the south of the A20 Ashford Road. The Pilgrims' Way and the M20 motorway both cross the parish. The name Charing first appears in 799 as Ciorrincg. The name probably comes from the Anglo-Saxon word cerring, which means a bend in the road, or it may be from Ceorra-ingas, which is Anglo-Saxon, meaning people of Ceorra.
Its most famous building is the Archbishop's Palace, which lies by the church and was an ancient possession of the Archbishop of Canterbury. It has been a farmhouse for the last 300 years. The church of St Peter and St Paul is said to contain the stone on which John the Baptist was beheaded. (text by Geoffrey Gillon)
