When genealogists talk about a cemetery kit they are not referring to a gravedigger or funeral director’s tools of trade.
A Cemetery Kit contains tools and items that will help a visitor to a cemetery or graveyard carry out cleaning and maintenance on the graves or tombs they wish to tend.
Following are some links which advise on the contents of such a kit.
I always learn something new when I read a post on Anne Young’s blog. Today as I was reading Q is for Quaker I expanded on my scant knowledge of the Quaker religion.
Anne wrote about Temple Hill Burial Ground which is also known as The Friends Sleeping Place. I thought that such a peaceful description of a burial place deserved a place in the Geneadictionary.
Thanks Anne for teaching me about this resting place.
Historically God’s Acre refers to the burial ground in a churchyard but today is sometimes used to describe any cemetery or graveyard.
God’s Acre St Mary the Virgin, Datchet, Berkshire.
Found this new term online today.
