At the east end of the south aisle are three badly worn effigies of the early 14th century, which were apparently removed from the church at some date, and were discovered earlier in the 20th century in the churchyard in a poor moss-covered condition and brought back into the church.
There are the remains of two medieval incised grave slabs in the churchyard (see the Archaeology section for further information).
