Beach Road cemetery is a Warkworth cemetery Gordon, a replacement for St Lawrence Churchyard which was full by the latter part of the 19th century.They were digging through multiple old graves for new burials in St Lawrence's Churchyard at the start of the 19th century so a new burial ground was past due.


Here they are in relation to each other.
St Lawrence's was built in the 12th Century, but within its footprint is a Saxon church, so there could have been burials there for 1500+ years. A lot of bodies in that small place.
