I recently tried to find a family grave & couldn't due to the overgrown condition of the graveyard. Doesn't look much different apart from the building on the left.

I agree with the comments of other people here,it doesnt look much different now as it did in these pictures apart from the little building/house has gone now. As for the graveyard being over grown I use to know an old man that maintained the grounds he was called Doug and had a black lab cross, he died unfortuantely around 2000 or was it 1999 I cant remember, these old building and sites will certainly out live us all. Its a great church I no longer live in Oulton and actually live in a similar area called Dronfield near Sheffield but when visiting family and friends I do on occassion take a look around the old place it has afew little walks nearby and is also near a Oulton golf course.
