St Andrew's Churchyard, Ham (Richmond)

Brief Description

St Andrew's Church was built in 1830/1, a grey brick building with two turrets, and was later enlarged with a south aisle with rose window in 1860. In 1900-01 a red-brick chancel was added, designed by Bodley and Garner. The entrance to the churchyard is through a lych-gate leading to shrub beds around the steps leading to the church door. Within the churchyard are a number of good chest tombs and a War Memorial within railings on 3 sides with a gate onto Ham Common. The churchyard is partly bounded by hedge, with railings to Church Road.
