MILTON CEMETERY

MILTON CEMETERY

On March 1st 1902 John Wilson aged 78 years died. He was buried in the new All Saints’ Churchyard extension Landbeach Road – Milton Cemetery.
In 2021 we set out to produce a plan of this cemetery.
We began by identifying all those graves or remains of graves that had legible names and inscriptions and plotted them on to the plan.
Our next step was to trawl through the Parish Records to identify those grave spaces that have no headstone or any commemorative plaque/marker.
Before the 1960’s the burials were clearly marked in the Church Records eg 4/23 and we were able to put them in the correct place but from the 1960’s there are burials in these records without any indication where the graves are situated in the cemetery.
We have had to estimate where these unmarked graves are using the dates of the burials.
There will be errors therefore and if anyone knows of an incorrect location of a grave please inform the clerk to Milton Parish
Council at clerk@miltonvillage.org.uk
We have also taken photographs of every grave or head/kerbstone – see PHOTOS.

Old Paddock Tree Planting

 

 

Thank you to all the volunteers  who braved the elements to help out with our first batch of native tree planting in the old paddock, doing a great job in planting 213 trees in total.

The Parish Council is endeavouring to identify locations suitable for the planting of additional trees, hoping to run more events in the future.

Should you have any suggestions as to locations please let the Parish Clerk know. clerk@miltonvillage.org.uk.

 

South Cambs Community Safety Partnership Survey 2020

South Cambridgeshire Community Safety Partnership (CSP) is made up of representatives from South Cambs District Council,  Cambridgeshire County Council, Police, Fire and Rescue Service and the NHS and Probation Service, who work together to deal with local crime and anti-social behaviour issues. This survey aims to collate information from the public on perceptions of safety within their communities. This survey is extremely important in the current climate where the Covid-19 pandemic prevents face to face community engagement. The results of this survey will directly affect the way in which community safety in certain geographical locations is prioritised among the statutory bodies within the South Cambridgeshire Community Safety Partnership.
