Berkhamsted Living Magazine montage of restoration needs at Rectory Lane, Berkhamsted

The Friends of St Peters want to talk to any of the descendants of families with members buried in the lower part of Rectory Lane Cemetery.

As conservation work begins on memorials in the cemetery, the Friends are keen to find out as much as they can about the individuals commemorated. Project manager James Moir explained: ‘Descendants may have details or photographs that could add to the knowledge of future generations.’ There’s also the fact that the responsibility for maintaining memorials normally lies with the families concerned.

Please contact James by 30 March via or on 07545 786372. The list of names is:

  • Groves
  • Rippon
  • Holloway
  • Leaper
  • Smith-Dorrien
  • Parkins
  • Barnes
  • Hurst
  • Hewson
