Both sites have churchyards and contain a fine collection of large 18th- and 19th-century monuments, including the Call monument with obelisk and coat of arms of 1794. Two Astronomers Royal, Sir Edmund Halley and John Pond, were buried here, and also John Cocking who died attempting to land in a parachute from a balloon.
