    Default Warmwell Cemetery Map

    Does anyone have a map or transcript of the layout of the cemetery at Warmwell please?

    The CWGC has a photo of it but no map.

    Thank you in advance to anyone who is able to help.

    Hi Paul,

    I too have someone on my list buried there but I couldn't find a plan of the cemetery. You could try posting your request on the local Family History Society's forum, which can be found here:

    Hi Paul,

    If you're after photos of the headstones of Edgar Brearley and Herbert Blackshaw, drop me an email at the usual address.

    Regards,

    Jeff

    Hi Max.

    Thank you very much for your offer of help, it is most generous.

    I'm particularly interested in the location of Edgar Brearley's and Herbert Blackshaw's graves with respect to each other (side by side I believe),which row they are in and which of their graves is closest to the church. I have photos of one of their funerals and am trying to establish whose. Currently I think that it is Eddie Brearley's.

    If you were able to provide a sketch of the layout of the CWGs or some photos to help with the same that would be much appreciated.

    The memorial and cemetery in Warmell, were unfortunately, a couple of places I did not have the opportunity to visit whilst in the UK a couple of years ago.

    Kind regards.

    Paul
