Quaker Burial Ground, Bishopwearmouth Cemetery.

  • Description

    In 1850 the 'Society of Friends' agreed for the first time to place stones over the graves of their brethren, with names in full with the date of their death inscribed on them, as prior to 1850 grave markers were not deemed necessary by strict Quaker doctrine. The grave spacing and uniiformity of the Quaker graves gives the plot a utilitarian and spartan feel that differs from the diversity of style conveyed in the other sections of the cemetery . *********************************************************************************************************
