Pudsey Cemetery - grave of Harold Marsh and his parents
Pudsey Cemetery - grave of Harold Marsh and his parents
The inscription caught my eye, because Harold died in service in the First World War, but this is not marked as a Commonwealth War Grave. His inscription reads "Gunner Harold Marsh RFA who died May 16th 1915 in his 17th year". His parents George and Mary were also later buried here.
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.
