Coveney Wesleyan Methodist Chapelyard, contains a single Commonwealth War Grave, albeit one that is marked by a family headstone that is in a state of disrepair. The soldier buried is one who served with the Yorkshire Regiment.

We are extremely grateful to Richard Roberts (<richard@nosnailshere.co.uk>) who has forwarded the photograph of the headstone in the chapelyard, together with a view of the chapel and the view towards Ely Cathedral from the chapel.
