Grave Location key Hill Cemetery

Hello all, hoping there is a Key Hill cemetery expert out there that can help. I am unable to find the block of graves numbered between N621 and N646.
N600 to N620 run along the path adjacent to the catacombs then N647 to N651 are on the end of the block below the lower path, It appears they should be between N600/N646 and the path but there is not the space, maybe the path has been widened and the graves have been lost underneath it ? or maybe they are in a different area ? can anyone point me in the direction of the block that contains N621 to N646. I thank you in anticipation.

I think this has been asked before, wasn't sure then either but the burial maps aren't always accurate. Maybe you could send a message to Key Hill Brian. I think some of the paths were not as shown. The maps on the Jewellery Quarter website seem to have been removed last time I looked.

I found the maps on the Jewellery Quarter website which is where I got some of my info from also visited the cemetery on a couple of occasions, I will do as you suggest and try sending a message to Key Hill Brian. Thanks

Some general information please, if anyone knows. I traced a relative to a public grave in Key Hill. The grave number lists no less than 59 people in that grave plot. Were that many bodies really interred in one plot? if so how?
