Thanks for this photo, my mother and my neice are resting in there.

Good photo Alan, the church looks very clean. However what is it about graveyards that people feel compelled to vandalise them.


Comment by Mick on 4th April 2013 at 06:17
Ive got some photos of St Davids graveyard, and I just looked at them, and I have one a photo of a giant boulder that the inscription says was found while a grave was being dug in about 1878 by George Eastham Sexton and John Gibson Gravedigger
It also says it was placed here to mark the first burial in 1834 and was Erected 1910 by Revd CH James, HJ Ainsworth, and H Heyes Churchwardens.

I think if I had found it while digging a grave I would have left it where it was a started digging a bit further along.

2 of my gt gt gdads and 1 gt gt gma are somewhere here. I had a random walk around last autumn but no luck. Does anyone know if there are records to locate plots etc?

Carol When I was looking for my grandmas grave in Ince, there were books with the graves numbered. Someone took me to it and there was no headstone on.
