Medieval burials in the rear garden of 13 Stratford Road, Warwick

Description of this historic site

10 undated inhumations which can reasonably be asserted to have been part of the medieval cemetery on the south side of the church of St Lawrence.

Notes about this historic site

1 Two trenches were dug and at least 10 graves were revealed, generally aligned south-west to north-east. Four distinct rows of graves were identified in Trench 2. No complete skeletons were found as in all cases the graves extended beyond the trenches. Based on the alignment, density and location of the graves, the presence of stone-lined burials, and the condition of the bone, there is little doubt that these form part of the medieval churchyard associated with St Lawrence Church. No structural evidence of the church itself was found.
