Cappagh graveyard is still in use today. Extensive church ruins are situated within the graveyard. The oldest headstone that we came across in this graveyard was in memory of John White, who died September 22nd 1779, aged 77.

The graveyard surrounding Nantenan church contains the graves of both Protestants and Catholics. Headstones of note in the graveyard were in memory of the Rev. Thomas Royce (possibly Boyce - the inscription on the headstone was quite worn), who died in 1747, aged 43, and also a headstone dating from July 10th 1777, in memory of John Welesh, aged 22 years.
