Mortuary Chapel, St Mary's Church

The Mortuary Chapel adjoining the cemetery of St Mary's Church in Wreay was built in c.1835. It was built by Sarah Losh as a reconstruction of St Perran's Oratory at Perranzabuloe, Cornwall - the inspiration being that in 1835, this was thought to be the earliest Christian church in England. The Mortuary Chapel is Grade II listed.
