Strensall (St. Mary) Churchyard is off Church Lane in Strensall. The churchyard contains 4 burials from the First World War and Two from the Second World War.

Two of the burials are those of soldiers who had served with the Yorkshire Regiment.

We are very grateful to Harry H Punter of the Strensall Local History Group for photographing the churchyard and the two headstones of soldiers who had served with the Yorkshire Regiment.
