St Michael and All Angels, Lilleshall, Shropshire

All the gravestones from the churchyard have been removed and placed around the perimeter walls of the churchyard and along one of the walls of the new cemetery across the road. I assume that this was to make grounds maintenance easier but nevertheless is a policy of which I strongly disapprove.
On first sight the words "While on earth she was loved and we deeply deplore her ..." seem a strange thing to have said but "deplore" is being used in the old-fashioned sense of the word meaning mourn.
