It was a decisive English victory. In terms of troop numbers, it was the largest battle fought between the two Kingdoms. James IV was killed in the battle, becoming the last monarch from the island of Great Britain to suffer such a death. 10,000 Scots and 4,000 English died in the space of 4 hours.
After the battle the slain were taken to Branxton Church visible in the centre to the right of the cross.
