Yeah - I noticed that there had been recent burials there. Sorry to hear about your friend. It is a very peaceful place. Shame they can't collect the grass when they have cut it - would be nice if the hedges were cut proper and the place given a little TLC.

Hi most of my mothers family have links with Wharton Church,
My grandmother was church warden and my grandad and his brothers were grave diggers.
They lived in church cottages on church land,
Both my grandparents are buried there as is their daughter who was murdered by strangulation, by a Mr Jack Wright who was hanged at strangeways.
