Earth to earth ...
I had passed the gates to this cemetery many times and resolved to visit one day to see if I could find the graves of any of the Bridgwater Chants. Today was the day.
What a depressing location!
You do not expect a cemetery to be a jolly place but this one was abandoned. There had been a few floral tributes placed in memory of passed loved ones but the majority of the people here lie forgotten. Not only forgotten, but with the absolutely stupid disregard for memorials for the dead which is encouraged by 'Health and Safety' legislation, many of the everlasting tributes had been demolished. Do the people who are paid to carry out this sacriligeous destruction have a conscience and ever shed a tear for their actions? It would appear that there are too few Christians taking decisions in this country nowadays.
I hope the people whose project is to help remember those who lie here will come to fruition. http://www.bridgwaterheritage.org.uk/wembdon_rd_cemetery/index.htm
