Two gravestones in Ely Cemetery, Cambridgeshire from the CROSS and JEFFERY families.
This large mound in the city cemetery at Ely, Cambridgeshire is believed to be the mass grave for many people who died during an epidemic. It may have been something like cholera, which swept through the city numerous times through history.
The mound certainly seems to be man-made, and has an almost ‘ceremonially’ placed tree on top.
