Beckett Street cemetery, guinea graves (Burmantofts) (7 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. View of Beckett Street cemetery showing rows of inscription graves or 'guinea graves'. These were a type of common grave for a number of unrelated people buried at the same time, but unlike pauper graves they had headstones commemorating the names of the dead. This type of burial originally cost the family one guinea (one pound and one shilling), hence the popular name. The graves on the right here date from 1912. In the background are the high-rise flats of Shakespeare Towers, Court and Grange.
