This is a very large cemetery. Office staff go out of there way to be of assistance. Only problem is the grass mowers cover gravestones with cuttings which discolor the stones.

This is a wonderful, quiet (!) and utterly attractive place to bird, or just for a walk. You'll find lots of other birders there, too.
