Photo in a cemetery

What do you think of this photo? It is just a headstone. OK it is quite a big headstone but it is still just a grave. Look closer and you can read whose remains are there. It is George Formby. It is just an ordinary photo but the reason I have included it is because we can learn from photos, and we can learn from blogs.

This is Warrington cemetery. You don't have to look too far before you find his grave. You can imagine the crowds when he was buried and you can be part of history. There must be famous people in every cemetery, well if not famous people, at least some interesting stories. It is just a case of knowing the story behind the grave. On my photography website you can read George's biography on my website at and you will find it on the local history page.

Happy snapping
