One of the oldest monuments was this one, to 160 people who died in a theatre fire in 1887 ... thus showing that Mum & Dad had been right in not letting me go to shows (too dangerous!)
This was part of the memorial garden for the infants ... there was a nice bench and a child dressed up as an Indian Chief.
Within most cemetaries are assorted Commenwealth War Graves - Exeter is no exception.
Unusual to see a female war grave - especially for WWI
This is the war memorial for this section of Exeter in WWI ... I have never seen similar though. The flat stones around the cross are also inscribed with the names of those who died (as well as appearing on the actual cross itself, as normal)
Exeter suffered bombing on a few major occasions. They are called The Baedeker Raids - as the famous guide was published before the war, and to lower moral these beautiful cities were bombed.
Many civilians lost their lives -
A typical Commenwealth War Cemetary memorial cross, complete with a "Sword of Sacrifice"-
A typical Commenwealth War Cemetary lay out -
BTW - the stones on the far left are German dead, and among the British dead are many Polish servicemen.
