Belmont Abbey is a Catholic Benedictine monastery that forms part of the English Benedictine Congregation. It stands on a small hill overlooking the city of Hereford to the east. The 19th century Abbey also serves as a parish church.
It is so sad to think that children were being placed in unmarked graves in a monastery churchyard as recently as 1903.
