Kelly's Directory 1930 states :-

"The church of St. Andrew went to decay many years ago, but the churchyard is still used as a burial place for this and the adjoining parish of Stainfield:

it was enlarged in 1871 and a mortuary chapel built, in which Sunday services are now held by special licence from the Bishop.

The register dates from the year 1561.

The living is a vicarage, annexed to that of Stainfield, joint net yearly value £300, including 22 acres of glebe, in the gift of E. T. Tyrwhitt-Drake esq. and held since 1926 by the Rev. Horace Bertram Cartman, of University College, Durham, who resides at Stainfield".

"Apley church, dedicated to St Andrew, is a small brick building erected in 1871 at a cost of £284.

It was built to conduct burial services within the graveyard of the former and by then non-existing medieval Church St Andrew's, which before 1816 had decayed and been reduced to its foundations.

In the 19th century the churchyard also served the parish of Stainfield"
