Site: St Nicholas churchyard extension - north gate (2 memorials)

W4, Church Street, St Nicholas Church

Nearby Chiswick House was in the Cavendish family, 1758–1929, which explains their association with this church.

The church's website says: "The Churchyard was Chiswick’s only burial ground for many centuries. It was closed in 1854 because of lack of space, except for limited burials in existing vaults. For the next twenty years people from Chiswick were interred outside the parish. It was re-opened in 1867. The Duke of Devonshire gave to the parish gifts of land adjoining the churchyard for enlarging the burial ground in 1838 and 1871."
