Its a shame about the theft of headstones,but unless local criminals attitudes are changed or the boundaries secured better I fear it will only continue.

Rats snakes and crows in the centre of a city, either it wouldn’t be tolerated here or it would be a site of special scientific interest. It sounds like they should have some ecologists in the survey. Churchyards are often unique wildlife refuges heres an example

Whats also funny about the ancaster site is that it is a Victorian municipal site but was unfortunately positioned over a Roman cemetery. If you go to the site you will find stone sarcophagi which have been dug up to accommodate new graves abound in the brambles around the site

I imagine that the Calcutta cemetery was initially established outside of the town and might have some remnant flora and fauna from that area? Have they considered an action plan
