Any one with a long gone relative from this lovely little village - contact me and I will try to find the grave and take a pic for you . I was very impressed with the well tended site - even the very old graves - from the late 1800's were immaculate and nearly every one had flowers or spring bulbs put on it. What the most touching thing was that there was a section just for young children - and they were ringed by adults - some were from the 1890's - and they had little flowers on them too. I don't know if it was descendants of these people or that there is a lovely soul from nearby who does this - but I was deeply moved by it. There were several military graves - which I photographed - when I download them will put the names on here. I will be in Ryhill a few times over the next month or two attending the dentist :-)
