The graveyard of St Mary the Virgin, Illingworth.
In 1860, an extension for burials in the churchyard was granted until 1st January 1863, after which date, they were to be limited to existing vaults and walled graves.
A planned addition to the burial ground would, it was hoped, be ready for consecration prior to the end of autumn 1861.
The following people, and/or members of their family, were buried and/or have memorials here:
