About the memorial: Addition to gravestone of their mother Sarah Ball, who died in 1913. There is a small courtyard opposite the entrance to the Co-Op supermarket, and it is lined with a small number of gravestones. A nearby building is a former Chapel, now the 'Grounded' cafe/bistro. I presume these gravestones were moved into this small area when the land around was re-developed. Whether or not the courtyard itself was part of the graveyard, I do not know.
