St Paul's New Cemetery, Sarisbury Green
« on: Thursday 15 March 12 15:21 GMT (UK) »
Would anyone happen to have access to a plan of this cemetery please?  I am trying to find the location of Grave No 138 - I have a plan of the "new burial ground" but not of the "new cemetery". :)

Thank you, that is where I actually got the grave number from - they appear to now charge 5 for any further info, including a plan, which they never used to do. 
I think I will have to go and look around - by the plan I do have this part of the graveyard does not appear to be too large so it may not be too difficult to find - assuming of course that it has a headstone!

It is quite large but very well maintained and there are paths between the rows of graves.  There is also a good sized car park.

Best of luck

Hi Sue
Just to let you know I had a look in St Paul's New Cemetery (on the plan of the churchyard that I have the "New Cemetery" is actually the small part of the churchyard cemetery that drops down beyond the steps) - unfortunately there are so many graves without any headstones that it was not possible to find what I was looking for.  Anyway it was worth a try.
I think the cemetery you were referring to is "Holly Hill Cemetery" which is remote from the churchyard and for later burials.
Thanks for your interest.
Jean

Thank you for letting me know - yes, I was thinking of Holly Hill.  Do you know I lived in Sarisbury for 20 years and had no idea there was a new cemetery at St. Paul's.
