Womersley Cemetery and St. Martins parish church

There are two extant wargraves in the Cemetery at Womersley, including an unusual Royal Navy grave with a late date.

Extant interments -

K/13350 Stoker 1st Class Barr, L. W.,
Royal Navy, HMS Actaeon,
17th April 1921

5059 Pte Procter. P, 
Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry,
12th April 1916 Age 21

A quick check shows HMS Actaeon as being a shore establishment, part of the torpedo school.

The parish church of St. Martin has a large cross memorial, but no extant graves.
