I have an abiding fondness for graveyards. I have spent hours in them. It is the peace, tranquillity. It is the wildlife that often find refuge here. Most importantly it is the graves themselves, and their headstones, testimony to past lives.
This graveyard belongs to St.John’s church in Church Road, Southend-on-Sea. I have walked past it many times, and again this morning. I have yet to spend much time in it, or the church. I am also fond of old churches and have visited many over the years. Sometimes this has been related to my family tree researching, but most often because I just enjoy wandering around old buildings.
