Having two cemeteries so close together has clearly caused problems for visitors in the past. Sadly the older Clifton Road Cemetery is rather run-down and overgrown whereas Whinfield Cemetery is well looked after. Railway history enthusiasts will be able to see the very deep cutting used by the former Great Central line through the town next door to the Clifton Road Cemetery.
I have never seen anything like this before. Two hearts lined together with a (stone) rope.
Both the chains are carved from stone. I suspect that this must have been a very expensive monument.
Aged 100 - I did quite well to spot this one as the plot was rather overgrown.
