Plan of Christchurch Cemetery and War Graves

Many thanks to Graham Arnold who has carried out extensive research to try to recover the original plans of the graveyard, which seems to no longer exist. CWGC must have had a copy at one time, as they give precise gid plan references to the plots. A copy of their inspection report carrying these references is below. Also included is Graham's sketch of war grave plot. Thanks to Graham for both documents.
