    Thanks Martin,

    Here's the bottom part of Joseph Williamson's damaged grave-slab, and the location of the grave within the new memorial garden. I'm not sure whether there are any markers placed there on the site to identity the grave? The location plotted was taken from the archaeological survey that was carried out by Oxford Archaeology North.

    The memorial garden has raised beds/planters on it, to minimise any distruption to what remains consecrated ground.

    Thanks Steve,

    Also, there's a sandstone Liverbird memorial directly over the top of the Joseph Williamson/Tate family grave. It was copied from the one that used to be on the Sailor's Home and has the following dedication inscribed on it:

    'In Memory of All Those Buried in St Thomas' Church Yard'

    Thanks for the great pics... Takes me back to when I worked in Bridgewater St (1976-1984).
    Interesting to find out about Williamson's grave too... I didn't know it was down there.
