You are here!

Everyone laid to rest here has their own unique story. Without research, the birth and death dates recorded on headstones don’t give much away about the person’s life. Some people choose to be remembered in the way they want by writing their own epitaph, including for people to remember them with a smile on our faces. Comedian Spike Milligan famously had written “I told you I was ill” written in Gaelic on his gravestone.

Smile. A Poem by Spike Milligan

Smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu, When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too. 

I passed around the corner and someone saw my grin. When he smiled I realized I’d passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile, then I realized its worth. A single smile, just like mine could travel round the earth. 

So, if you feel a smile begin, don’t leave it undetected. Let’s start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected!

Think about or share with someone ...

what you do to make people smile.

Move on to the next bench (230m) (251 yrds)

Continue on the wide tarmac drive (away from the Chapels). Take a sharp left at the first path (section B4 C/E). At the next junction turn right and the bench is about 20 metres up the path. The map will help guide you.
