Yes, it does seem they have all been forgotten. Very nice series of pictures though. That iron casket is interesting. I did not know they had such things.

Thanks Robass and XGE for viewing and commenting. I thought that it was sad also as I stood there in the small forest. I felt somewhat like an intruder on sacred ground. It was to me a reverent moment, which isone reason I left the photos untouched.

Thanks Steve for viewing and commenting. I saw the first iron casket like this about 40 years ago while doing some genealogy in an old church cemetery. Steve, please also read my prior post to Robass and XGE. Thanks again.

Thanks for sharing these Jerry, they are very interesting. What people don't destroy nature will eventually reclaim.

Great series. Very interesting.

Funny how you hate history when you`re in school but the older you get the more interesting it becomes.

Looking at the old homes and places in the south is really something. I went back and toured last year. However, this is all recent stuff compared to the medevil England spots. And as for "sacred" ground. Alas it is not just in this country... Scotland has graves on main streets and the weirdest is John Locke, buried in a parking area ( and marked )
In York I spied this as was dumbstruck

Parking and dumpsters over graves is the thing I forgot to mention... I did not want to start a new thread and just got the picture as small as possible. The original thread is too good to detract from IMHO
I was also told, this area had three graves minimum to a plot.. and they were popping up.. not deep in the ground so they would pop up during a bad storm.
