TQ3267 : Queen's Road Cemetery, Croydon, in Winter (5)

Queen's Road Cemetery, Croydon, in Winter (5)
Queen's Road Cemetery, Croydon, in Winter (5)
For something in excess of 20 years, Queen's Road Cemetery, with 97000+ burials, was "full" and closed to new burials. With increasing pressure on space for burials, Queen's Road was re-opened 5+ years ago. The gravestone, in the foreground, is one of the recent burials.

I could see contrasts in this picture; recent burial with fresh flowers against older (seemingly neglected) gravestones, black granite against white snow (a B&W image, but with a colourful splash of flowers).
