Three of our clergy died in office whilst living at Amblecote and are fittingly buried in our Churchyard.
John William Grier Was the first incumbent of Holy Trinity and served for a period of 24 years from 1842 until 1866. He died suddenly, after preaching at divine service on 28th of January, 1866 aged 56 years. His grave, which may be found on the right of the path from the Lychgate to what is now the main entrance to the Church, is a rather impressive memorial described as "Horizontal rectangular stone base surmounted by a coffin shaped monument with a lid in cruciform shape. Old English lettering."
The following inscriptions are to found around the grave. The Revd. JOHN WILLIAM GRIER, first incumbent of Amblecote who died (to die is gain, Philli. 6 21v) suddenly on Sunday Jany. 28th 1866 in the 56th year of his age. Remember them who have spoken unto you the word of God, whose faith follow. Heb 13th 7v. In memory of JANE, widow of the Revd. J. W. GRIER Born 28th March 1806 died 31st Decr. 1894 Love is of God and everyone that loveth is begotten of God and knoweth God.
John Simon Boldero By a really amazing coincidence the very next incumbent of Holy Trinity also died whilst here. This was the Reverend John Simon Boldero who served for an incredible 34 years from 1866-1900. He died at Amblecote Vicarage at the age of 69 years. His wife Emma died 22 years later aged 85 years.
The Boldero family grave consisting of three stone crosses can be found almost in line with the vestry door on the south side of the Church. The inscriptions read MABEL AGNES BOLDERO daughter died January 21st 1890 aged 18 JOHN SIMON BOLDERO Priest Vicar of this parish 1863-1900 died January 4 1900 EMMA BOLDERO wife died January 25 1922 Aged 85
Bernard Thomas White-Jones Was the fifth incumbent of Holy Trinity and served for a period of just four years between 1908 and 1912 before his death at the age of 35 years. His grave is directly outside the vestry door next to the water tap.
The memorial takes the form of a Celtic cross on a plinth and the inscription reads as follows Of your charity pray for the soul of BERNARD THOMAS WHITE-JONES Priest entered into rest Dec. 12 1912 Aged 35 years Jesu Mercy
