SK5813 : Rothley Cemetery Chapel

taken 5 years ago, near to Rothley, Leicestershire, Great Britain

Rothley Cemetery Chapel
Rothley Cemetery Chapel
The cemetery and chapel were opened by the Parish Council in 1904 after the churchyard became fully occupied.
The architect was Mr. W. Langley of Langley & Baines of Leicester, and the contractor was a local builder, Mr Frank Sleath. The winner of the original round of tendering refused to do the work at his tender price of 354, amending his tender to 525. This resulted in a fresh round of tendering, on which Sleath was successful, although even his tender showed a slight increase on his original price (475 instead of 457).
