A lovely picture of the cemetery in its early days, the chapels are becoming dilapidated but are in use as storage,the central tower has gone many years ago probably from neglect. The idea of their being two chapels was that one was used for non-conformist use as the Wesleyan Chapel burial ground in Yeadon was closing down. If you read some of the gravestones, lots of very young children may be mentioned but it will also say buried in the Wesleyan Chapel ground.

The Sexton, at one time was Fred Cooper, the Brother of my Maternal Grandfather. I met him a few times but, he died whilst I was still quite young.
