By now people who follow both my blogs should know that I have some kind of fascination with old cemeteries, not because I have a fascination with death but because you find the most interesting things in them. Every now and then I go and wander around the South End Cemetery which is near my office and I always return with some interesting photo or piece of information when. The South End Cemetery came into existence in 1882. At that stage each of the other cemeteries in town had been for a specific church or religion, while South End was meant for (just about) everybody. A simple fourfold division between Church of England, Nonconformist, Roman Catholic, and Muslim was adopted and this spatial pattern was retained in subsequent cemetery planning until the 1990s when the cemetery was full.
