Ford Cemetry, Liverpool - headstone question
« on: Sunday 16 September 18 18:37 BST (UK) »
Hi,
Just been to Ford Cemetery to look for a plot (M135). Found the location, but it's part of a square area in one corner of the M section where the headstones are all missing. It doesn't seem likely the way the numbering is laid out here that these would all have been buried without headstones, so just wondering if anyone might know the history of this part of the cemetery? Looks like maybe 15 plots from the high end of each of the first 5 rows are missing. You can feel stone just under the grass, and scuffing a way bit you can see what might have been the base of a row of headstones where you'd have expected the headstones to be

Thanks,
kevin

Welcome, belatedly, to the forum.
I suggest you try posting this in the Lancashire section, which often has posts about Ford Cem.  Otherwise try the liverpool &SW Lancs Forum, for local knowledge.
