Hatley – East Hatley

St Denis’, East Hatley, is a redundant church set in a ‘live’ graveyard (under the auspices of the diocese).

Life, and death, are not without rules, hence… Churchyard regulations for graves – Diocese of Ely’s guide for families and next-of-kin.

The building is now owned by the Friends of Friendless Churches – until the FoFC is able to complete its restoration project, it is not normally open… however, if you’d like to look round, please ring keyholder Peter Mann on 01767 651 115.
