There are two graveyards in this parish. There is one situated in Mount Talbot and one in Tisara. They are still in use.
There are ruins of an old church in the graveyard of Tisara in which the Carmelites are buried. There is a church in the graveyard of Mount Talbot in which Protestant Service is still carried on.
All the graveyards are level. There are tombstones and crosses in these grave-yards. Some of the crosses are ornamented and they are made of stone. Unbaptised children were in forts.
