Rectory Lane Cemetery Booklets

The Friends have published a series of booklets to highlight the fascinating history of the Rectory Lane Cemetery. The books cover the hidden symbolism of memorials and gravestones, the lives of some of the more interesting personalities buried here, and the moving stories behind the war graves which date from World War I. The latest booklet is about Remarkable Women in the Cemetery – appropriate for the centenary of the Suffrage Act 1918. Hard copy booklets are available from the Friends for a suggested minimum donation of £1 each, or you can download a copy here.
