Part of the grave yard in Brackley Road was sealed off as a potential crime scene, and a blue police tent was errected so that investigations could be carried out.

A police investigation at the site is ongoing although early indications are that the remains could be of an archeological nature.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said this morning: “Thames Valley Police officers were called shortly before 3.30pm yesterday (11/2) to a report of human remains being discovered in Buckingham Cemetery in Brackley Road, Buckingham, while a new plot was being created.

“Although enquiries are in the early stages, it is believed the remains form part of an archaeological discovery.”
