As you would expect, many of our parishioners fought for their country, not just in the Great War but the Second World War, the Falklands, Iraq, Afghanistan and many more. Sadly, many lost their lives and some have their final resting place in our graveyard.
Many were buried in family graves (more research to be done) but around forty war graves are dotted around the churchyard.
Please note that this list is NOT definitive and that more research will need to be done regarding status.
