The Columbarium at Lawnswood Cemetery.

In the New Year I returned to Lawnswood Cemetery to remove the Christmas Wreaths I had placed on my parent`s grave. I always have a walk around different parts of the cemetery
The Chapel at Lawnswood Cemetery.
Because it was the weekend, and no services were happening I decided to go down to the Chapel where I came across this wall plaque.

Another area where I don`t usually walk is to The Columbarium.

Built in 1933 by A E Kirk and Tomlinson, of Leeds is now grade 2 listed.
Looking inside The Columbarium at Lawnswood Cemetery.
Inside are tiers of niches containing cinerary urns and memorial plaques. There is also a War Memorial.

I hope that`s rock salt on the floor by the open plaque!
