The St. Edward the Martyr Orthodox Brotherhood is a monastery of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia a ways south of London, England. It was established in 1982 in the Brookwood Cemetery (the largest cemetery in Europe) in Surrey to care for the relics of St. Edward the Martyr, King of England.
A small monastic community (largely made up of native Britons) chants the services daily at the shrine of St. Edward, augmented on Sundays and feast days by the parishioners of the mission parish attached to the monastery.
The monastery publishes a monthly magazine, The Shepherd, which is available with a suggested donation.
