Wigan Cemetery
The 'sunken' part of the cemetery at Lower Ince. Only a handful of graves can be seen, the rest have sunk.

Doing my family history found out my GGG Grandparents and their son are buried in that section. The gravestone third from the right as seen is their family grave. Surprised it has lasted this long since the grave was purchased in 1864.

What section is that exactly?? ive got ancestors buried in this cemetery and while ive got their locations ive never heard about this sunken section, sounds interesting!

This is Ince Cemetery. Wigan Cemetery is sited off Wigan Road in the Gidlow area of Wigan. I'm surprised that a site like this one should give the wrong information.

This is Wigan Cemetery in Lower Ince, next to Ince Cemetery and Westwood Cemetery.

As its now full, a 'new' Wigan Cemetery opened in the Gidlow area of Wigan.
