St Nicholas' Churchyard
Brockenhurst is justifiably proud of its Churchyard which overlooks the village and is adjacent to St Nicholas' Church which is one of only two churches in the New Forest mentioned in the Domesday Book and is reputed to be the oldest church in the area.
The Churchyard is divided into two areas: the smaller area surrounding the Church itself falls under the auspices of the Church Authorities whilst the lower section below the steps is managed by the Parish Council. If you would like to enquire about our Churchyard please contact the Parish Clerk.
The Churchyard also contains many Commonwealth War Graves from the First World War. These are mostly ANZAC soldiers who were treated at the No. 1 New Zealand General Hospital in Church Lane but who died from their wounds. Further information on the history of the Churchyard and the Commonwealth War Graves can be found in the Visitor Information section of our website.
