- No entry for the Parish Church - said to be misplaced owing to confusion with Itton parish - although Lewis 1848 says Ifton church had been demolished anyway.

- The Parish Registers of Wales (NLW, 1986) states that there are no visible remains of a church at Ifftwn / Ifton, and whilst the parish has long been associated with Roggiet, no separate records survive.
