The Lidbury Graves

Saturday 27th June 2015

This morning Bruce was delighted to be able to show Sue Sweetingham and her daughter Kim their family graves. Unfortunately one headstone had fallen over and is cracked in half but the inscription is perfectly legible as it is on the second. Sue and Kim were also very keen to know a little more about the cemetery and Bruce gave them a brief tour which included a visit to see the grave of five day old John Peake who was the first to be interred on the 8th May 1846 the day after the opening of the Cemetery. Afterwards, Sue kindly gave FoSOC a very generous donation and also purchased copies of our two new publications.
