CANCELLED: Exeter Dissenters Graveyard - Heritage Open Days Opening

Bull Meadow Road, EXETER, Devon, EX2 4JF
Exeter Dissenters Graveyard


View the recently restored Exeter Dissenters Graveyard. ‘Dissenters’ was the term for a range of Protestant sects who broke away from or were expelled from the Anglican Church during and after the Civil War.

This small graveyard accommodated perhaps 2,000 burials. The restoration of the Graveyard allows viewing of rebuilt and repaired memorials. Faded inscriptions have been deciphered and the texts will be displayed. Research on family histories has produced a mass of information which will be available on-site. Information boards by the entrance and inside enable the site and its historical context to be understood. A free leaflet providing a short history will be available and a booklet providing a more detailed history will be for sale.

The visitor experience will be improved with a new gazebo and facilities for smart phone users to access the EDGT website for information on individual monuments, burials and family histories.

Due to the COVID emergency we've been given Lottery funding to enable safe operation. We will have masks and sanitizer, appropriate notices and supervision at the entrance. The visitor experience will be improved with a new gazebo and facilities for smart phone users to access the EDGT website for information on individual monuments, burials and family histories.
