Other_Information:

May be endangered as development of new housing in the area progresses.
There was an old "fire ditch" when I first found the cemetery but most of
that has disappeared as have all the small stones that were there in pairs
at the head and foot of graves. The shrub that was planted at the head of
several graves is still there.
