Cemetery Theme


The CDPB theme for today is Cemeteries/Tombstones.

This picture is from inside Hyde Cemetery. I've shown you The Dead Centre of Hyde here before, but the first photographs I published of Hyde Cemetery were in connection with my account of Harold Fred Shipman, the murderous GP of Hyde.

The theme has also been touched on here with photographs of Unsafe Monuments, the graveyard at the rear of St Thomas The Apostle and Hyde Chapel's graveyard as seen in my photograph of the Village Stocks.

Thanks for being the first commenter on my blog (the first pic on the theme), and I return the compliment!

Denton said...

I think I definitely want trees in the cemetery where I'm buried ... Also, thank you for your list of blogs which have posted there theme post. I find myself using your post to drive my surfing on theme day

Kate said...

Trees definitely add a peaceful environment to a graveyard. Very nice!

Lynette said...

The colors of eternal rest--the greens, grays, whites and creams--seem universal. They're particularly comforting in your photo.

Felicia said...

It does look peaceful and pleasant. You've spent some time covering the cemetery - they are a very interesting and historical places.

slinger said...

How long has this cemetery been around? The more I've been reading about the historic value of cemeteries, the more it peaks my interest about a community.

Kerry-Anne said...

I like the angle of this shot, peeking through the trees - the greens really do make the scene look quite tranquil (which I suppose it is, with all those very quiet people...).

Kuanyin said...

Lovely old cemetery--very restful! :-)

Glenn Standish said...

An interesting and peaceful graveyard.

~tanty~ said...

Beautiful photograph and cemetery especially with those trees.

alice said...

One of the nicest I've seen today, so many trees...

Jilly said...

Beautiful cemetery. Gravestones and trees should go together...

R&R in The Netherlands said...

The cemetery must have a rich history, judging by the very different types of headstones.

BundaWAH said...

Trees make it peaceful. Love it.

Z said...

I'll echo Denton on the service you provide with your lists! Thanks!

P.S. I'm running a little late on getting the postcards out. I have your address and will be sending one out before the end of the week, at the latest.

Olivier said...

on dirait un cimetiere caché , et qu'il vaut faire l'effort pour decouvrir ces charmes


a hidden cemetery would be said, and which it is worth to make the effort to discover these charms

Hi Gerald,
Nice shots but it the theme right?
The theme made me think of my dad I posted a flower for him, instead of a stone or graveyard, thats a bit softer:)

Have a great week:)

isabella said...

The Hidden cemetery of Hyde ;-)

"May they rest in peace" - quite literally!

Pamela said...

Yeah, I'm going to chip in and agree with Denton too. I've tried going by the list on my blog, but between folk who aren't up yet and those who have posted something else entirely despite registering for the theme, I'm getting a little weary.

But it also concerns me that this must take you a great amount of time and you must surely have other things you should be doing. We really should not come to rely on your generosity.

Rambling Round said...

A very shade place!

NorthBayPhoto said...

Nice photo. I think cemeteries are more pleasant when there are trees.

Neva said...

what a nice view of the cemetery.

Marie said...

Nice photo. Dear "hyde dp", my post about le père Lachaise is my second post of the day. The main one was posted this morning. But I found it important to mention le père Lachaise as many people from other countries than France are buried there (Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, etc).

jelvistar said...

This almost looks as if you were walking along a path and came upon the cemetery. Nice shot.

Gerald,
This cemetery is so lovely. Many of my ancestors are buried in your area of the country, so it wonderful to see this setting.

When I first read through your links, I completely missed your listing for SDP. Now I see you have entered the names of the cemeteries in each location. That is SO neat! As per Denton's comment, your listing as they go live is helpful. How do you generate the link list seeing there are many of us with feed/portal problems, so you didn't see us go live via the portal? Do you have other ways of detecting when pages go live, other than surfing the standard list over and over? Whatever way you do, it thanks for what to the rest of us seems a big labor of love!

Interesting to see how different your cemetery looks from the ones here in Norwich.

Nice litte resting place. Looks peaceful.

Carraol said...

Looks so peaceful and reflexive place.

Steve Buser said...

Sorry, I missed get around on Theme day, we were away in Texas. To answer you question, the cemeteries here seemed to have fared pretty well.

Lovely photo.

Thanks for including my site in your list. I didn't register because I didn't think I'd manage to get the photo, but then it worked out after all.

Ham said...

That's a really nice take on the theme - much more cheerful than dismal.
