Trees and gravestones in Exeter Higher Cemetery
Unfortunately, the inscription on the gravestone in direct line with the tree can't be read; it commemorates Thomas Hayes "late of this city, innkeeper" who died in 1886. His family wanted him to be remembered for what he did in the city.
Exeter Higher Cemetery

Exeter Higher Cemetery was opened in 1866, and over the years the site has been expanded at least 3 times. Over 70,000 people are buried there and it currently has over 12,000 memorials. It has a number of historic monuments including the Theatre Royal Fire memorial and World War 2 memorial.
There is a garden of remembrance and an area for children's graves
