St. Mary's, South Milford

St. Mary's chruch South Milford is enclosed by a small but well wooded churchyard, and accompanied by a neat modern municipal cemetery across the road.

 It has a small rose window, but the compactness of the grounds make this a difficult church to photograph.

The small cenotaph, somewhat hidden away, records over twenty first world war losses, of which a significant number are KOYLI

The two extant war interments are neatly located in the corner of the churchyard
