War memorials in Akely have been transcribed by Peter Quick, and published in a booklet titled "War Memorials and War Graves, Volume 7, Buckingham Hundred", available from the Buckinghamshire Genealogical Society.
Browne Willis in his book "The History and Antiquities of the Town, Hundred and Deanry of Buckingham", 1755, surveyed the original parish church, and recorded the following:
"Here are no painted Glass or Monuments whatsoever, except these four on ordinary Grave-stones in the Chancel:
1. 1618. Heare lyeth William Smithe, Son of Doctor Smithe.
2. Here lyeth the Body of Paul Pavely, of Stepney in the County of Middlesex, Esq. who departed this Life the 15 Dec. 1690. And also of Anne his Wife, who deceased the 26 day of May, Anno Domini 1693.
These two lye without the Communion-Rails.
3. Here lyeth interred the Bodis of Mr. Thomas and Mrs. Elizabeth Smyth, late of Buckingham, his Sister. She dyed the 19 day of November, in the 27. Year of her Age.
4. Richardus Fienes junior, obiit April 16, sepultus April 18, 1710.
Gulielmus filius Richardi Fienes, natus duodecimo die Martii, denatus undecimo die Julii ejusdem Anni,
These two are within the Communion-Rails.
Doctor Thomas Philpot, Rector of this Church, and of Turweston, as they informed me, was buried here, but there is not the least Memorial for him."
