This was a large well maintained site. It was a Bank Holiday and there were a number of other visitors paying their respects to people buried here.
 
 
This memorial has many interesting features. One entire section has been removed, the year of death has been changed from 1822 to 1824 and the age at death has been changed from 64 to 66 years.

A new book from the owners of probably the largest archive of cemetery related photographs in the world!

Available now - on both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

The authors have viewed millions of gravestones, and are offering readers a selection of the rare and unusual gravestones that they have seen, with full-colour illustrations. Each category of type of gravestone, age of person, cause of death, rare names, and errors found on gravestones are given a points score to indicate rarity.
