St Swithin's



St. Swithin's churchyard is a peaceful and sacred place in the heart of the village. Dronfield Team Ministry is responsible for the churchyard, working in partnership with the Chapel Lands Trust and the Diocese of Derby. All enquiries about the churchyard should go to the Parish Office in the first instance (details at the bottom of this page).

Gravestones and other monuments remain the property of the family, and they are responsible for their upkeep.

Our Peace Garden is a series of raised flower beds where ashes of loved ones who have died may be buried.
