St John the Baptist, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire
(Click on an image for a larger version)
This church was adjacent to the large town cemetery but although it covered a large area there were not many graves with readable headstones.
Thomas Scaife and Joseph Rutherford both worked for the Birmingham and Gloucester Railway and were killed when the boiler on a steam locomotive exploded at
Bromsgrove on 10th November 1840. Scaife was killed at once but Rutherford
died the next day.
