The cemetery in Fakenham just out of the town. The mouments are a little suburban.

Fakenham Cemetery

This is the scene from inside the Fakenham Cemetery looking out. The cemetery is a little industrial and appears tired. There are poorly maintained pathways surfaced in thin gravel. In need of a good sweep, the cemetery is fairly modern dating from the 1930's from the age of the headstones.

Without any sign of imagination and with no evidence of funding by the local Council; the cemetery fulfils a basic need to be buried near Fakenham and little else besides.

The dismal surroundings of the cemetery at Fakenham is typical of much of Anglican cemeteries. The land has been scraped clean of monuments with a small fraction being left to one side as a slight recollection of what was originally there. Oh dear!  I didn't spend much time in the cemetery because of a bunch of rather menacing people lounging in what has become a sad part of the town scape in Fakenham.

To the cemetery!

The sign to the cemetery is peeling and tired and says something about how the Anglican Authorities treat the idea of the faithful departed. If they give such thought to the dead how will they treat the living?
