The Final Chapter 23 Jun 2012 Requiem Mass was celebrated by the Archbishop of Birmingham for 9 bodies from the Eynsham Abbey site: a link to photo feature.

The Eynsham Abbey Archaeological Trail is largely in the grounds of this Church as the Church Hall (The Tolkien Room) lies over the site of the Refectory which would have had the Dormitory above and the Graveyard lies where the Cloister would have been. The Archeological Dig took place before the Tolkien Room was built and 9 bodies were discovered whihc in 2012 were given a full Requiem Mass and buried in a new Grave - the Eynsham Abbey Grave - just beyond the far end of the Tolkien Room
