Thanks for your latest, Mick. And thank God for that cup of strong coffee before which I felt certain that I was looking at a flood of Grape hyacinths.

I thought exactly the same Philip.... but what a sad sight to see.

is this Ince? I went exploring in the oldest part of the cemetery once but turned back because the ground was so spongy. Subsidence I suppose?

If this is Ince cemetery then there are a number of famous including Arthur Wynne, are buried there. Arthur Wynne was credited with devising the modern day crossword and if you want to visit his grave, from the main gates its 5 down, 4 across.

I’ll get me coat

At least those buried there won't be disturbed by building over the ground. About 4000 skeletons have been found underneath where the new railway station is being dug out in Birmingham. Tests are being done on the bones apparently,as they were buried at the time of the Industrial Revolution. I've made my mind up - it's cremation for me!

I wonder when the damage to the righthand grave stone was done, probably vandals "hit and run"
