This is a combined series of small plaques to commemorate the lives of those who's ashes will have been scattered nearby.
It's real Title is the Barbican.

There's a similar thing at ince /Wigan cemetery that has named plaques on. I imagine this will be the same.

Hi Veronica, your parents were buried there, mine were not. Do you know how our burial places are chosen? You and I were from St Pats. I thought Ince cemetery would have been the place for your mum and dad? Who and how do "they" decide? Do we get a choice?

Its where I 'll probably end up Maureen with my mam and dad ...not for a good while yet though!

Hi Titus most of the neighbours are buried nearto my mam and dad as well as Father Lappin. Could be the area you lived in .... Not sure although my grandparents are in Ince. I suppose you do have a choice - I hope so!
