St. Marys Catholic Church, and village Cemetery, Carlton

There is one war grave in the churchyard of St. Marys Catholic Church

1213919 Sgt Pierson, R.T.,
Royal Air Force
30th June 1942. Age 21

Likewise, only one war grave is extant in the village Cemetery

23866974 WO2 (SQMS) O' Neill, M.,
Royal Army Ordnance Corps

It is of note that the above headstone differs from the standard CWGC design in that it has rebated corners, and is of dark grey granite.
