Rodwell and Rodwell (1977) record, 'The graveyard is one of great character and contains a good series of C19 monuments (some of which need urgent repair); of particular note is the series of C19 Gothic headstones E of the chancel. The churchyard is better than usual and it is essential that it be protected from depredation.'<1>
