Had an interesting stroll around the park cemetery looking at the many large memorial stones from the 1800s. What a shame that everything is so overgrown with grass and weeds two feet high

Beautiful cemetery full of interesting stories and history. Spent an hour getting lost in it and could have definitely spent a lot longer here if it hadn't been so cold that day. Children playing, dogs being walked and people lost in quiet contemplation.

On 1st glance many of the nature notes look to be duplicates but in fact on my cursory review, all the notes are unique and specific to the area close to where the notes are located. The text is fascinating, the attempt to maintain a...More

all the dog mess. Sitting on a bench and it's all you can smell. Hard to let children run around without them stepping in it all!

Hi Ted. I Appreciate your reply, and thanks for doing this, as I live outside of London now and don't get many chances to get to the Cemetery, my Mum used to go to see my Dads grave but refuses to do so now because of this... More
