Pudsey Cemetery - grave of Peter Strickland
Pudsey Cemetery - grave of Peter Strickland
Of the three tall Victorian monuments here, Peter's is the one on the left. The inscription caught my eye, because not only did he die young (aged 25 in 1884) but by that age had become organist of Pudsey Parish Church and Conductor of the Pudsey Choral Union.
Pudsey Cemetery

The cemetery is a grade 2* listed "park" (list entry 1001614), laid out in 1872 to the designs of William Gay, and has been in use since 1875. The eastern half is consecrated for Church of England burials but the western half is secular (unconsecrated). In the centre is a dual chapel - presumably likewise sacred/secular - but it is now disused, dilapidated and fenced off as dangerous. The whole site is in the ownership of Leeds City Council.
