The Upton Hall Cemetery in 2005

In 1904 the body of the Foundress of the FCJs, Marie Madeleine, was moved from Gentilly in France to the cemetery at Upton Hall. Her body remained at Upton until June 1980 when it was moved to the chapel of Stella Maris Convent, Broadstairs in Kent.

Headstone Marking Jane Bawden and her Daughters Grave

Due to vandalism, the headstones have been removed from the Cemetery, numbered plaques now mark the locations of the individual graves. Plaques on the end wall give the names of the sisters buried in each location.
