Cemetery notes and/or description:
Church Hours: Daily 10am to 4.30pm; Sunday services begin at 11am

There are two separate graveyards in the grounds of the church. A walled area to the west of the church was for black slaves, whereas the white parishioners were buried on the east side. Many burials date back over three centuries. Inside the church are memorials to early governors and others significant in the history of Bermuda. Significant interments include Sir Richard Sharples, the 1973 Governor of Bermuda who was assassinated while walking a dog on the grounds of Government House, along with his aide, Capt. Hugh Sayers; American Midshipman Richard Dale who was the last victim of the war of 1912; and Anne Willing Bingham who was supposed to have been the model for the famous Draped Bust portrait on the obverse of the American silver dollars created by Gilbert Stuart, but there were also soldiers who died of yellow fever and many generations of gentry and commoners, governors and slaves, privateers and statesmen.
