Hatley – East Hatley

St Denis’, East Hatley, is a redundant church, now owned by the Friends of Friendless Churches and set in a ‘live’ graveyard – which is under the auspices of the Diocese of Ely. The church is not used for services.

  • Life, and death, are not without rules, hence… Churchyard regulations for graves – the Diocese of Ely’s guide for families and next-of-kin.
  • The building is opened every day from around 8.30 am to dusk for anyone to look round, for quiet contemplation. The churchyard, which is also a Local Nature Reserve, is owned by Ely diocese.
