CofE Chapel in Ince Cemetery
 CofE Chapel in Ince Cemetery   by Rev David Long  (Sony A65)
The C of E Chapel in Ince Cemetery, taken from a room on the top floor of the Coaching Inn. The WW1 Cenotaph is on the right, with the memorial to the 1871 Moss Pit disaster to its left. The area where many of the victims of the disaster lie in unmarked graves lies between. Hundreds of other poor people lie in the open space beyond the cenotaph. The fence left of centre borders the West Coast Main Line, with Mount View and Westwood Lane beyond.

Interesting, the Moss Pit Disaster, is this related to Moss Pit Row in Aspull?

There are no bad people in a Cemetery, everyone was 'Dearly Beloved' and 'Sadly Missed'.

The high point on the horizon above the chapel is Billinge Hill.
