Many thanks for the work you have done, it's good to be able to link the picture with the relevant slab. I have a few pictures of the ones with our family on , but they are not such good quality.
Picture earlier on thread of flat stone over Vault by Leslam, also a sketch of where it is.Thank you so much for your help. Hope to be in Midlands in few weeks time. Definitely will go visit my Grandads
Place of rest.

I have just found out that 2 of my uncles are buried in Warstone Cemetry in a public grave, they both died in infancy, they are both buried in section 'O' Nos 841 (1909) and No. 1130 (1918). Do you know if there is there a plaque listing their names by that section?
The slabs have all been cleared off now - so should be clearly visible. Passed by a few days ago - looks different with the railings up - cannot just walk in from anywhere now! Builders were on site and paths were a mess - they have cleared that stubborn ivy from the catacomb wall, repaired the wall where it was propped up =- looks awful, new parapet edging around the catacombs - stands out! and new fencing inside the parapet - very modern, ugly - but stops anyone from jumping off - so H&S are OK - If you pop down now you will be able to check out the headstone - but it will on;ly have a dozen or so names on it - those who pay - hundreds buried in there are not listedHello Pepper, I think a couple of those slabs are missing on that side, Key Hill Brian will know if he spots this thread. It may be that they were covered in that horrible ivy, there has been some work done above the catacombs so here's hoping!
Not all the names are included on those slabs for various reasons and many could not afford to have it done.
