Summary. Observations were made at All Saints' Church, Great Braxted, Essex during groundworks for an extension to the church vestry. The articulated skeletal remains of seventeen individuals were disturbed during the excavation of the foundation trenches and Soakaway 1. As far as could be judged, all the burials were orientated east-west with the head end to the west. Evidence for coffins was almost non-existent and the burials could not be dated.
