    Lost the Plot?

 

Lost the plot? Quite probably! The oldest part of High Wycombe Cemetery is a veritable jumble of grave numbers because in the 1880s, thirty years after it was first established, the cemetery administrators decided to renumber and redesign the layout. Why? Well, let’s look back at its history…

Oh Wycombe town, you pass us by
Yet do you ever wonder why
Quite who it was that let you thrive
And made it good to be alive?
