Hartshill Cemetery (reflecting the values of Victorian Society)
Location 13 on
the index map
The area of the cemetery in use today (2000)
the 1930's the cemetery was extended on the left hand side.
After the 1st World War gravestones were of a uniform size
and limited by the local council regulations, this reflects the
20th C. ideal of a 'classless' society.
the council is now considering allowing memorials
in the more ornate style and size of the Victorian period.
next: is the 2nd
World War memorials
previous: were the 1st Class Roman Catholic graves
