Blandford Forum’s cemetery chapel was built in 1855 and is an important surviving example of both an unaltered early cemetery chapel and of Anglican church design in mid-nineteenth Century Dorset. It was vandalised by an arson attack in September 2013 and has since been fully restored by the Town Council.
