|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The presence of a church close to where All Saints Church now stands, was recorded already in Domesday Book in 1086. The present building dates almost certainly from the late 15th century.
Conington means the king's manor, the 'ton' of the King. For many centuries the property was held by members of the Royal House of Scotland who were also Earls of Huntingdon. The Manor later passed to the Cotton family and afterwards to the Heathcotes.
By the mid-1970s the parish found the cost of maintaining the church beyond its means. In June 1976 Conington was united with another parish, in Holme. Conington church was declared redundant and in 1977 it passed into care of The Churches Conservation Trust.
