Cemetery notes and/or description:
Whitwood parish was created in 1866. A church dedicated to St Philip was built at that time and served the needs of the community until it was closed in 1974. The deteriorated church building was demolished shortly after the last burial on this site in about 1975. The first burial in the new churchyard was that of a toddler, Alfred Robert Ingham. The rectory and surrounding property, including the churchyard, were subsequently sold into private hands. In the 1990s, the churchyard was cleared of headstones and overgrowth and converted into a private garden and green space.
