A commonwealth war graves stone stands adjacent to the path above:


447016 Private T. Bowey 9th BM Canadian Infantry. 20th November 1915 aged 30. I only yield thee what is thine, thy will be done.






Thomas Bowey was Son of Robert and Annie Bowey, of The Mills, West Thirston, Northumberland. He was 5' 5.5'' inches tall, Dark Complexion, hazel eyes, dark hair. His civilian trade as given to the Canadian attesting officer was 'Teamster'. He was declared fit for the Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force on 28th May 1915.

This is the only Commonwealth War Grave in the churchyard.


(ps the 'BM' is an error on this stone, it should read 'BN' the abbreviation for 'Battalion'.)
