      Memorable yet largely unknown

        Cutting link with the past will make Circus worse

                      The cemetery chapels survey

                      In February 2009 we called for help to document the state of cemetery chapels around the country. We heard about boarded up and derelict chapels; chapels converted into homes or used for storage; as well as those still in use for worship. Now an advisory group at the Ministry of Justice is interested in our findings and we'd like your input to help bring the survey up to date.
