Knowle Cemetery Handover Ceremony 23rd September 2005

 

The old hospital cemetery at Knowle has been handed over the Wickham Parish Council following restoration and landscaping enhancements.

The handover is the result of several years work by a dedicated team including Jenny Mallett, Sue and Ted Fitzgerald and Therese Evans.

The handover ceremony was carried out by the Venerable Peter Hancock, the Arch Deacon of the Meon and attended by many relatives of those buried in the cemetery.
