The churchyard is divided into four parts.  The original churchyard around the church includes a garden of remembrance where ashes are buried.

Plans of each section of the church, with lists of names of those buried, are contained in the four PDF files listed below.

For the last 30 years the annual newsletter of The Friends of Grantchester Church has contained a short biography of some Interesting People Buried in Grantchester Churchyard. In some cases their connection with the parish was tenuous but they all had an affection for Cambridge – as a home, or workplace, or holiday stop-over – and in some cases their affection was particularly for the parish and church. You can find these biographies here. If you find them interesting, why not join The Friends of Grantchester Church and lend your support to this beautiful building and churchyard. Just email the Secretary at and ask for a membership form. She would also be pleased to receive any corrections to the articles.

See the Church News page for details of the Churchyard Working Parties.
