In progress – Kirwee Public Cemetery and Kimberley

We’re still snapping away, aided by the fantastic summer weather we’ve been getting.

Kirwee Public Cemetery has been photographed and listings are now appearing, slowly but surely.

Kimberley is also in progress, but to make sure I don’t get too far ahead of myself I will complete Kirwee’s two cemeteries before listing Kimberley.

Remember, by subscribing to this blog you will automatically be kept abreast of current and future projects.

A new cemetery map has been erected at Waddington, which finally answers the question of the mysterious plots of land/undergrowth around which posts and chains have been erected. More on that next time.

And, more exciting news – a new photographer is onboard. I’ll introduce him to you soon.

Until then, happy hunting.
