Visited in 2009 - It appears to have been opened round about 1900 and extended (sideways) twice, once in the last decade – area with plenty of space. Entrance lychgate wide enough for cars but little parking inside. Small (3/4 cars) space at gate which has footpath passing across it. Little sign of laying down or vandalism. Mature trees including grove of cedars, hedged surround, well kept. Gardeners present during our visit. Handful of war graves. A circular hedged rose garden (rather sad). Areas marked by ceramic markers and more modern metal ones. Houses all round cemetery now, area circa 6 acres.
