Hi.

Apologies for opening this photo of a commemoration on another thread as regards the above cemetery.

There also seems to be some anomaly between the dates on the headstone and the CWWGC.

Kindest regards to all.

Chris.

Hi Terry.

Of course, you are correct. I thought the 'missing' piece of masonry included a missing date.

There are over 180,000 burials in this cemetery alone, the WW1 private commemorations are most enlightening, a wealth of information.

I hope, in the future, to cover some more cemeteries around Leeds.

Watch this space!

Kindest regards to all.

Chris.
