Consecration

This photo shows the consecration of the Cemetery in 1921. This is probably the Rt Rev Michael Bolton Furse, Bishop of St Albans, and behind him Canon Chipchase Stainsby, Rector of St Peter’s Church. Behind the crowd of parishioners can be seen the metal railing which was then removed to open up the upper section of the Cemetery.
