Isaac Lain Cemetery: Notes

Isaac Lain cemetery

This long-abandoned and neglected family plot is in an overgrown copse of trees in the middle of a field. Only two stones are left standing, most are broken and partially obliterated by time and weathering. Unlike some cemeteries, this one did not appear to have contained many more burials than can now be read.

An excellent reading was done a few years ago by Keith Riche, and confirmed by the compilers with the assistance of Patricia Bootes.
