This site is on the end of a pedestrian only High Street reached by foot from the railway station or car park close to the church.

There are two WWII graves left of the entrance path from the High Street and two WWI graves west of the existing active church.

GOOCH, EDWARD SINCLAIR
McMASTER, ARCHIBALD
OTTLEY, GEOFFREY CLAUDE LANGDALE
PARKS, HARRY HERBERT
STAPLETON, HUBERT MONRO
