  1. Could you please tell me, why the East cemetery gates are kept LOCKED ?
    What is the point of having seats in there, if you can’t get in to sit on them ?
    All ‘fine and dandy’ if you are able-bodied, you can climb over the wall. What do you do, if like me, you are disabled ?
    Sit on the wall and hope the G-force from the passing traffic will blow you in ?!?

    • In response to Ethel (Hi Ethel)
      The gates to the East Cemetery don’t actually lock, it’s the weight of the gates that makes them appear locked but if you turn the knob anti-clockwise and push you shouldn’t have a problem entering to sit on the seats.
