There was a sparsely filled graveyard directly around the church and a more
crowded one just across the road.
More details of this accident can be found here. "There was no sign of Q-Queen T1892. P/O Shirlaw and his crew P/O Dugdale (Observer) and F/O Mair (W/Op/AG) failed to return". The aircraft is recorded as "having hit a balloon cable at Pilton Hackett, SW of Birmingham". The crew is mentioned in the Squadron Roll of Honour and had service numbers 81054, 84034 and 78277.
