Remembrance day – Layton Cemetery, Blackpool

Weekend walks in Blackpool

Layton cemetery in Blackpool was opened in 1873 and has over 17,000 grave stones in various states of repair. I visited today just hours after 11.00am on Remembrance Day Nov 8th 2020. Scattered through the grave stones, many read “ Died in France in the Great War” and so on. A whole section dedicated to Polish airmen based here in the second world war.

The last survivor of the ‘Charge of the Light Brigade’ is buried here, he died in 1927 aged 97.

30 acre plot and we were the only people there, but you could feel you where not alone.

Lest we forget.
