    The approximate position of their common grave site is marked in red on the plan below.
    "In common with most cemeteries nationally some parts of our cemeteries are consecrated with other parts left unconsecrated.
    When most cemeteries were designed and opened, certain parts were formally blessed by dignitaries of the Church of England,
    thereby consecrating the ground prior to burial. However, it was also recognised that persons from other religious
    denominations such as Roman Catholics, Methodist etc. would also wish to be buried in the cemeteries, therefore some areas
    were left unconsecrated by the Church of England. When a burial takes place in an unconsecrated part of the cemetery,
    the minister representing the religious belief of the deceased will conduct a service at the graveside, thereby blessing that individual
    grave at the time of burial."
