The cemetery in Brighouse contains Portland stone headstones from both World Wars and several burials in family plots. I am indebted to Mr Leslie Butcher for his assistance in finding the grave of Sgt Booth and also for the interesting information about the cemetery. In the above photograph he is standing in an unmarked burial area from WW1. The dead, from a local military hospital were brought here for burial. They were brought at night to hide the high number of casualties from the local population.
