    Barbavilla. Barbavilla vault is closed now. It is a sad sight to see Protestant vaults where the Catholic church once stood. There are both Catholics and Protestants buried in this old cemetery. Only twenty-five tombstones remain inscribed now. The oldest grave is Edward Plant's who was buried in the year seventeen sixty five. A beautiful headstone is erected over him in memorium.
    There are a few trees growing in the graveyard namely, palm, yew, boxwood, leburnam, velvet, weeping willow, juniper, whitethorn, and lilac. Some of the tombs are ornamented with various coloured flowers, while others are surrounded by marble slabs, and iron railings.
