Within the walls of the adjoining church lie inserted the remains of Mrs Dorothea Howard, otherwise Hasells, relict of John Howard, Esq., who departed this life at Shelton in December 1684 to whose memory and that of their descendants and as a place of burial for his family, Ralph, Viscount Wicklow, has caused this monument to be erected in year of Our Lord 1785
A rather sad story told about this graveyard is *that a tragedy involving a junior member of the Howard family a two year old child smothered in its cot in England. The little casket it is believed was returned to Old Kilbride and put in the monument. Shortly after the residents, of the area were troubled, to hear a baby crying at night. This persisted over many weeks until the casket was taken and re-interred at New Kilbride,. It is said the weeping ceased. And this is the reason given that the Howards stopped using the vault.

We have our own pyramid tomb in Liverpool. It is located in St Andrew's Church, Rodney Street.
It is the tomb of one William McKenzie who was interred in it sitting at a table with a winning hand of cards held in his bony fingers. He was supposed to have lost his soul to the devil in a poker game. He reasoned that if he wasn't buried then the devil couldn't take his soul. This is supposed to be one of the most haunted places in Liverpool.edit on 26-2-2013 by nolabel because: (no reason given)
