Brockenhurst is justifiably proud of its Churchyard which overlooks
the village and is adjacent to St Nicholas' Church, one of only
two churches in the New Forest mentioned in the Domesday Book and
reputed to be the oldest church in the area. For further information about the church and it's history please visit St Nicholas Church website.
The Churchyard is divided into two areas: the area
surrounding the Church itself falls under the auspices of the Church
Authorities whilst the lower section, known as the Cemetery, is managed by the
Parish Council. If you would like to enquire about the Churchyard or the Cemetery
please contact the Parish Clerk.
The Parish Council is honoured to have Commonwealth War Graves from the
First World War. These are mostly New Zealand soldiers who were treated at
the No. 1 New Zealand General Hospital in Church Lane but who died from
their wounds. An annual Anzac service is held every April.
There are also a few graves for British, Canadian, Australian and Indian soldiers.
Further details can be found on the Commonweath War Graves Commission website.
