Thanks for this Ted; I've been past lots of times but never been in. I haven't even been able to photograph it properly from the road due to my usual incompetence where cameras are concerned. It is of particular interest because of the planting scheme which I'd really like to see quite apart from paying my respects.

 

Pete.

It's certainly a charming cemetery, Pete.  One of my favourites.

 

If the current planting scheme is still in place, you better visit soon!

 

Did you know the CWGC gardeners change the planting scheme every five years?

 

And that when they use red roses, they are always planted between every second grave?

A stunning cemetery when all the plants are in bloom and the moat is full - one of the quieter cemeteries but well worth a visit as there are some very interesting burials there.
