Burial Grounds

There are three separate burial grounds at Dymchurch, all surrounding St Peter and St Paul Church


  • The cemetery at the front and side of St Peter and St Paul Church is owned and managed by the Diocese of Canterbury.
  • The cemetery at the side of the community hall was owned by Shepway District Council. It was closed as a graveyard some years ago, and the register of interments is now kept at Dymchurch Parish Council.
  • The burial ground at the rear of the Masonic Hall is owned by Dymchurch Parish Council. The burial ground has been full since 2008 and no further spaces are available.


  • Dymchurch Parish Council has a Memorial Garden within the burial ground for interment of ashes. There is also a facility to scatter ashes on the rose beds.
