Robert Thrale who died in 1538 in Sandridgebury, Hertfordshire, was according to his will, buried in the "the medle Aley" of St. Leonards Church, Sandridge.

It is likely that many ancient Thrale graves were removed during the 1888 clearance of the graveyard. 1

The earliest known grave of which any trace remains is in the graveyard outside St. Leonard's Church in Sandridge village lies is the tomb of Susanah Thrale who died on 15th November 1751 Aged 23.
