I have a question which arises from my recent Yorkshire trip and
my cemetery trawling.
If a stone is in a cemetery does it imply that the person was buried
there? The reason I'm asking this is that there are several stones
in the Batley cemetery where it states "and was interred at
xxxxxx". Clearly, therefore these people are not buried in that
cemetery. If this statement is not present can one infer that they
ARE buried in that cemetery?
As always, any help will be appreciated.
