There are nine graves on the east side of the church grounds of St Michael that I have marked down as illegible as at July 2010. These include two near the south porch which appear by style to be possibly early to mid 18th century.

There is also an ornate double grave with cherub, hourglass and book of life symbols. Both sides filled in but text illegible.
