Westgate Hill Burial Ground

Westgate Hill Methodist Church closed in 1971 but the substantial burial ground remains a Circuit responsibility with many impressive Victorian monuments and headstones.

Of particular Methodist significance is the grave of Rev. William Bramwell, a well-known revivalist preacher following the time of John Wesley.

There is also a WWII war grave and other memorials to casualties of both world wars.

Major renovation work was carried out in 2011 and links have been established with the neighbouring Tong School.

A small Circuit working party oversees the maintenance of the burial ground.

For further information please contact the Superintendent Minister.

The burial ground is located behind a row of houses on Westgate Hill Street (A650).

To visit by car, park on North View Road, then cross the main road at the pedestrian refuge and go across the grassed area between houses on Westgate Hill Street.
