Martin Nicholson's Cemetery Project

St. Marie's, Rugby, Warwickshire

It is very much a sign of the times that we live in that the board at the entrance has a web site and an email address. The new sign appears to have been stuck on top of the original sign using sticky tape - not really good enough in my view.

The Sisters of Mercy have a small section within the cemetery. All the graves have an ornate metal cross rather than a traditional headstone.

The nuns have a different design for the cross than the other members of the community.

Behind the church we found the grave of a twice-married lady whose first husband won the Victoria Cross in 1898 for action during the Battle of Omdurman in Lord Kitchener’s campaign in the Sudan.
