Saundby is a village in Nottinghamshire, England two miles west of Gainsborough and lay within the civil parish of Beckingham cum Saundby. In 2011 it had become a civil parish in its own name. The parish is bordered on one side by the River Trent. The village Church of St Martin was extensively restored in 1885.[2]

Saundby Origin – Saun+by (+by – farmstead of) Danish origin, possibly when the Danes travelled inland up the River Idle and settled in the area).Saundby is a small hamlet adjoining Beckingham with a population of approximately 100.[3] Saundby was a village of farmstead and small holdings. At one point a cheese farm existed as a way of dealing with excess milk that arose when the school canteens were closed.


The very small population of around 100 people[4] in Saundby has had little or no change in the last 50 years. The population was measured at 165 at the 2011 census.[5] The graphs below represent this data in comparison to England and Wales
