  • Notes 
    • On Nov. 16, 2009, Dave Napier visted Arnos Vale Cemetery and surveyed the area looking for the Mary Lasbury grave. It was very overgrown but Dave was able to find two grave stones which enabled him to map and locate all the 'lost' graves. The following day he returned with his son and worked out where the grave should have been and started digging. They were lucky to find the Lasbury stone for Mary and daughter Eliza about six inches below the earth/ bramble roots.

      This style of grave is known as a 'guinea grave' - because it originally cost a guinea (i.e. 1 pound & 1 shilling) back in the 1850's - these were the cheapest form of simple earth grave 'one-up' from a 'paupers' grave (which would be unmarked and usually a collective burial).

      Note: Mary Burgess Lasbury was buried on 17th September 1875 and was living in William Street at the time of her death. The record shows that she had bought the grave originally in 1861 and she was the 2nd interment in the grave. The grave number is Q64-
