Windsor Cemetery

At first glance the photograph above of the chapel in the grounds of Windsor Cemetery seems much the same as the chapel today, pictured below, however the current chapel features a reconstructed steeple. This suggests that the chapel in the postcard above is the one that was demolished when it fell into disrepair a number of years ago.

The headstone of Patrick Young Alexander

By shere co-incidence, the author found P Y Alexander's grave stone while researching the story about Trooper William Thomas Brown who also died on 7th July but 28 years earlier in 1915. His grave is very close by to the left of Alexander's grave. (Grave AN 147)

PYA and Trooper Browns graves
