At Stratford on Buckett’s Way, the road which leads to Gloucester and the beginning of Thunderbolt’s Way, a sign directs you a few hundred metres to the right off the main road to a rest area: some public toilets next to the Stratford cemetery.

If you are looking for a final resting space, there seem to be plenty of spots left. You may be put to a denominational election. Pictured above is the Church of England mob.

There is a solitary Presbyterian:

Stratford Presbyterian. Methodists are more numerous: P1090369

And what about these three, between the Presbyterian and the Methodists?


Could they have been Uniting Church?

    The last photo is of graves of people who have lived in the town for less than 25 years, so not really local.

    Those three unmarked (?) crosses look a bit creepy like unnamed soldiers in France, or siblings. Did you go over?

      No, though obviously I walked closer to take the pic of the Wesleyans. Maybe the crosses are new and interim, or marked on the other side which is the direction all the other gravestones there face.
