Graveyards at Shirley Heights Feb 16, 2008
When at Shirley Heights, take a minute and see the old graveyards. There are two of them: One (larger one) close to the road at the beginning of Carpenter Rock Trail. The other one is behind the ruins of the old cistern, at the beginning of Jones Valley Trail. These 18th century graveyards were abandoned and the tombstones are missing or damaged. Many of the inscriptions were washed away. The graveyards give you an impression about death during this time of the British Empire. The people buried there are mainly soldiers who died from tropical diseases.
