St Mary’s Church in Wimbledon Village, south-west London had been charging £20 a day to park in its cemetery. The money goes to three charities.
The church said cars were allowed to park on the graves of people whose descendants cannot be traced but this year some were put in wrong places.
Parking in the graveyard has now been stopped as a result.
Speaking to BBC London 94.9FM, Melanie Allcock from Balham, who parked in the cemetery, said: “We were told: ‘Go and reverse between these gravestones’.
“I thought: ‘This is very odd’. But we did it and went to Wimbledon.
