The churchyard surrounds the church. A will of 1459 left money for fencing the west side of the churchyard, and it is possible that the design of fence used then much repaired and extended can still be seen surrounding the churchyard today. The earliest registers record burials in 1558, while the oldest remaining grave stones date to the beginning of the 18th century. The lychgate was built in 1866, and moved to its present position in 1892, when the churchyard was enlarged after two old cottages had been pulled down. An area by the north wall has been set aside for the interments of ashes following cremations. The names of those whose ashes are interred are recorded on slate tables on the wall.
