Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 7th December, 2017)
Oh dear, several of my forebears are buried there. It is sad to see such neglect.
A very atmospheric photo. I know the chapels are in a bad state but I would hate to see them disappear....they are just so much a part of all our lives in the Ince/Spring View area.
Very scary and sadly not cared for.
I wonder if some are forgotten as time goes by.
We need to do something to help.
All it needs in tidying.
Community service might be a good start.
It is a sad sight and I may say ghostly in a way.
Looks very'Gothic' something Tim Burton might use in a film.
Unfortunately this is only a tiny part of the damage,and not the worst.
Irene,your right.Alan,my Oldest Son's grave is in a Churchyard near Bury the Cemetery is kept very neat and tidy by the Lads ang Girls who are doing Community Service they are there every Saturday & Sunday.
It seems that many people are losing interest in ground burial.
Over here most people opt for cremation and scattering of the ashes, either into the sea or other favored places.
Many of my ancestors are in there, used to go when I lived in Wigan even though I only knew one of them. Later family members in Gidlow Cemetry. Parents died in Hertfordshire, Cemetery has a rose garden, ashes scattered there. opportunity to plant a rose tree it looks beautiful in the summer.
