Seamer (St. Martin's) Churchyard. There are 6 Commonwealth War Graves in the Churchyard, 2 relating to the First World War and 4 for the Second World War. One of these graves is for a soldier of the Yorkshire Regiment.

The North-West corner of the churchyard in which the Yorkshire Regiment soldier has been buried is massively overgrown and many of the graves are in a poor state of repair. However, the area where Private Carr has been buried has been cleared, and a few turves of grass have been laid in front of the headstone. Somebody cares.


Private Charles Henry Carr. 57651.
