Decorations on travellers’ graves, Epsom

Posted on by royvickery |

Travellers’ graves in Epsom Cemetery, Surrey, photographed 31 May 2024.  Although this was the first day of Derby weekend, when travellers traditionally gather for the races, most of the graves did not appear to have received any recent attention, most of them were permanently decorated with artificial flowers.

Grave of Priscilla Williams, ‘went to heaven’ 2001, and John Williams, d.2015.

Jack Brazil, d.1990 aged 93, and Nelson Brazil, d.2012.

Aaron Smith, d.2014, and Ellen Harbour, d. 2021.
