A few out of area - Snaith, East Cowick and Rawcliffe

The municipal cemetery and church at Snaith, Holy Trinity church at East Cowick, and St. James' church, Rawcliffe, are all technically outside of my research area, but only just. As I needed to pass by them in order to reach my next survey location within my research boundary, they were visited anyway, and included here because they did provide some extant graves to record.

Neither Snaith cemetery, nor the Abbey, have any extant war graves, however the abbey is rather impressive

Holy Trinity church, East Cowick, another red brick and slate building, contains three extant interments, two of which are the same surname and the same regiment, but a conflict apart.
