According to the NIAH Whitechurch is An elegantly-appointed modest-scale rural parish church built by Michael Cox (b. pre-1729), Archbishop of Cashel possibly to designs prepared by David Ducart (Daviso de Arcort or Daviso d'Arcort) (fl. 1767-71) following the provision of a grant by the Board of First Fruits (fl. c.1711-1833)...Forming a picturesque landmark in the locality the setting value of the church is enhanced by an attendant graveyard containing markers displaying expert craftsmanship while an elegant gateway makes a pleasing impression in the street scene...Detached three-bay double-height single-cell Classical-style Board of First Fruits Church of Ireland church, built 1766, with single-bay single-storey vestry to north, and single-bay three-stage entrance tower to west on a square plan having spire. Renovated, 1820, possibly with tower added...Graveyard to site with various cut-stone markers, post-1766-post-1903.

During the course of surving the memorials in the graveyard we recorded a date of 1724 on memorial KK-WTCH-0042 and a further 11 memorials dating to pre-1766. There are 87 memorials in the graveyard and four wall murals within the church. A further five (KK-WTCY-0092-96) were removed from Whitechurch to Piltown church and have been included in this survey.
