Cemetery notes and/or description:
Some sources call this church Eccleston St. Mary, or Church of St. Mary Eccleston, or St. Mary the Virgin.

There was a medieval church on the site which was entirely rebuilt in 1809 by William Porden for Earl Grosvenor. A chancel was added in 1853. This was replaced by the present church in 1899, designed by G. F. Bodley for the 1st Duke of Westminster.

A ruined wall of the former church stands in the old churchyard, to the right of the present building. The churchyard contains the memorials to many of the members of the Grosvenor family.

This church building serves the village of Eccleston, which has a population of around 220.
