Morfill grave

This restoration of this grave in 2014 was made possible by Richard Morfill Parker, Daphne Reece, and Michael Hanks, surviving descendants of Professor & Mrs Morfill. The broken-off cross was set upright and cleaned, together with the surround. At first the restored grave (right) looked exactly as it must have done when it was new.
