people have trouble finding graves!!!

Saw this notice by an old chuchyard which had only 3 headstones in it and the rest of it was just grass.

Is that where Jack Cohen got the idea for Tesco?

Sorry, my musing may have been a bit too obscure! I was thinking of his "pile 'em high, sell 'em cheap" philosophy.

Ah I see - am a bit dim after my travels.

Pretty unfortunate though for people seeking memorial inscriptions in that old churchyard.

I'm afraid I'm being dim, too. No wonder what?

Sorry rephrased it a bit.

No there were only 3 families commemorated and the other 100,000 less 3 families had nothing to show they ever existed in that very overcrowded churchyard.

I was so surprised so many had been buried there.
