An unusual headstone commemorating 61-year-old lieutenant colonel James Barry of the Army Remount Service, formerly of the King’s Dragoon Guards.

Officers of the Army Remount Service were generally members of the landed gentry, experienced huntsmen and ageing cavalrymen. The equestrian painter Sir Alfred Munnings was among their number.
