In the porch, above the church door, is an
unusual memorial listing ALL the Mulbarton men who served in World War 1. Those
who died are in gold. This was made by a Mulbarton craftsman (see heading of Wartime page).
The Christian faith is found OUTSIDE the church
as well as inside:
Thou, within no walls confined
the humble mind.
ever bring Thee where they come,
going, take Thee to their home.
Cowper, 1731-1800, who lived in Dereham, Norfolk)
....is a conservation area, with fine primroses
in spring and many other wild flowers.
At the east end of the church are many graves
of the TURNER family (see above). Further east
is the red granite grave of SIR WILLIAM BELLAIRS (1793-1863) of The Lodge which lists seven battles in which he
fought against the French, including the Battle of Waterloo. The oldest gravestone commemorates Thomas Diver who died in 1696.
Many Mulbarton gravestones have verses of poems
or hymns, or verses from the Bible:
know that my Redeemer liveth" (Job chap. 19 verse 25)
be the Name of the Lord" (Job chap. 1, verse 21)
said. 'My sheep listen to my voice, and none can pluck them from my hand'"
chap. 10, verse 27)
lives and believes in me sill never die" (John chap. 11, verse 26)
All the Monumental Inscriptions have been recorded by the Mulbarton Heritage Group (below) and a list is available here.
