Marylebone has had a number of burial grounds and cemeteries. The first was
around S.Johns the original parish church in what is now Oxford Street
(1200-1400). The second was around the original St.Marylebone Parish Church
in Marylebone Lane/High Street . This church, rebuilt several times, was
demoted to chapel of ease when the new Parish church was built. It was
bombed and not rebuilt. The burial ground is now a public garden. It is here
that your James BELCHER would have been buried in 1811 (if not buried at St.
Anne's Soho). I have not seen it, so I do not know if there are any
gravestones kept in place. or around the walls.
The new parish church was built in 1817 in Marylebone Road, and the
churchyard was used for burials. In 1855 the Burial Board opened a new 25
acre cemetery for the parish in Finchley (still in use).
