Cemetery notes and/or description:
Whitgift is a small linear hamlet in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England approximately 4 miles east of Goole. It is located alongside the River Ouse and north of the A161 road between Goole and Scunthorpe. Ousefleet and Reedness are to the east and west respectively. It forms part of the civil parish of Twin Rivers.

The Church of St Mary Magdalene (on the Whitgift side of the border between Whitgift and Reedness) has a clock with an unusual feature. Instead of 12 (XII in Roman numerals) it has a 13 (XIII). Reasons vary, but local rumour relates that it may be due to the church being adjacent to a pub (now closed) at which the painter imbibed before completing the job!
