Staffordshire Cemeteries Saint Anne - Brown Edge

Brown Edge was originally a group of scattered homes and did not become a community until the 18th century when more families moved to the area to pursue coal mining.

Before Saint Anne's was erected in 1844, the village was part of the parish of Norton.


The church was built for "300 seatings". The land for the church and other buildings was a "gift". St. Anne is the patron saint of miners and Anne was the name of the wife of one of the benefactors, Hugh Henshall Williamson and Robert Heath.
