A very comprehensive website has been set up with respect to St. Mary's Church, Heworth. The bulk of the website details the monuments and monumental headstones that are associated with the church, but also includes details on the church itself. Amongst the information provided on the website are details of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission headstones, and we are very grateful to Bill Hartman (<email@example.com>) who is the webmaster for this site to allow us to use his photograph of Private Lynn's headstone.
