A real gem of a church - but one we had never heard of until we visited
it as part of our cemetery survey.
There was a book on the history of this amazing site on sale in the church but it makes no mention of the skull and crossbones on one of the graves. "Memento mori" (Latin for 'remember that you will die') is a symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death.
