There are a small number of ‘green’ spaces in the cemetery which are

not pathways but are

likely to be unmarked graves, particularly at the rear and sides of the cemetery. It is

possible that some or all of those that are unmarked graves originally had headstones but

that these have since been removed or possibly disintegrated. However, it is possible that

they were always unmarked graves, for example those of children, ‘paupers’ or those who

have committed suicide.

There do not appear to be any memorials that are not specifically graves, although there are

a few features that do not relate to specific burials, such as the cast iron railings in the

carriage turning area.
