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.
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, 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 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 by using the link to the Visitor Information section of our website.
