ST NICHOLAS CHURCH MORETON DORSET UK THE BURIAL PLACE OF LAWRENCE of ARABIA

MORETON CHURCH GRAVE OF LAWRENCE of ARABIA

The funeral service for Laurence of Arabia took place at the church in Moreton Dorset, St Nicholas Church Moreton Dorset in the afternoon of 21st May 1935. I visited this tiny church in south Dorset on a hot sunny day. There were 6 other people looking around as I entered to take photos of the inside of the church. At Laurence of Arabia’s graveside, the graveyard was empty.

The gravestone of Laurence of Arabia in the tiny graveyard at St Nicholas Church Moreton Dorset read:

TO THE DEAR MEMORY OF T.E. LAWRENCE FELLOW OF ALL SOULS COLLEGE OXFORD

BORN 16 AUGUST 1888 – DIED 19 MAY 1935

THE HOUR IS COMING & NOW IS WHEN THE DEAD SHALL HEAR THE VOICE OF THE SON OF GOD

WATCH THESE EERIE PHOTOs CAREFULLY TO SEE SOME RATHER SPOOKY IMAGES IN THE WINDOWS OF THE St Nicholas Church Morton Dorset

St Nicholas Church Moreton Dorset is a very unusual little church. It even has a circular gravestone in the grounds of the church. The windows around the church are not the usual stained glass windows, but rather clear glass windows with very unusual designs.

Replacing the usual stained glass window designs are designs of shining suns, a flower that looks very similar to a Jewish Manorah, very modern looking crosses and a scene of lightning striking that with the trees reflecting in the background gave a very eerie image of a face gazing out of the window!
