Image shows an example of one of the 'guinea' graves, also known as subscription graves, located in Beckett Street Cemetery. This type of burial was introduced in 1857 and continued until 1940. It enabled impoverished people to provide a decent burial for their loved one in a communal plot with a shared headstone. The cost of one guinea (one pound and one shilling) included a commemorative inscription of up to 36 letters. Some of the guinea graves are inscribed with as many as 46 names but this particular example of 1904 marks the interrment of 14 people aged between just 3 months and 59 years. The image was sent in by a Mr. Bradley whose relative is commemorated here. Frederick Othick Johnson would have been his Great Great Uncle but sadly died at the age of only 17 months.
