28 Sep 09 - Can I remind members that this group is about cemetery photography rather than churchyards. However some villages have opened public cemeteries adjacent to churchyards as extensions - or else have opened a new churchyard on fresh land away from the original churchyard and have called it a cemetery. Use your best judgement!

About Cemetery UK (not churchyards)
For images of UK cemeteries. From lichen growing on a headstone to a panorama of a cemetery.
A cemetery is land used for multi faith burials run by the local authorities or privately. No church involved but there may be a chapel of rest or crematorium on the site.
The Oxford English Dictionary states that a cemetery is "A burial-ground generally; now esp. a large public park or ground laid out expressly for the interment of the dead, and not being the ‘yard’ of any church."
Please submit images of UK churchyards to the Churchyard UK group.

The pool should show straightforward photography so no negatives, heavy manipulations, light experiments, mosaics, montages, collages, computer graphics, elaborate or decorative borders (borderless preferred), large titles (no titles preferred) or drawings/paintings.
Images that don't fit the guidelines will be removed from the pool. If one of your images has disappeared you may find the explanation in the group description above. If you don't understand why your image has been removed please contact one of the admins by Flickr e-mail.
