The Mashford graves surround an old yew tree at the East end of St Matthew's Church. The tomb stone for Mary Mashford (nee Labbett -died 1834) is well preserved. The epitaph reads:



With patience his afflicting rod

She meekly did sustain

Untill it pleased her gracious God

To set her free from pain.
