All Saints, Brompton-by-Sawdon
Under 'Brompton', the sign on entry to the village reads 'The Birthplace Of Aviation' owing to the long term residence of pioneering aeronautical engineer Sir George Cayley buried here. Brompton has been the seat of the Cayley family since the Middle Ages.
The poet William Wordsworth, married Mary Hutchinson at All Saints' Church in the village, on 4 October 1802. A copy of the wedding certificate can be seen in All Saints Church. (text added by Geoffrey Gillon)
Add the following sentence to the existing cemetery notes: Another parish burial ground, All Saints Church Cemetery was opened in Brompton-by-Sawdon after the Churchyard became too crowded to accommodate the burial needs of the All Saints parish.
