The grave of Andrew Handyside (1805-1887) and Alexander Buchanan (1829-1916) and other family members.

I have finally located the grave of Andrew Handyside and Anastasia Handyside and other relations.

As you can see its a very basic grave indeed, I imagine the headstone has been placed down for "health and safety gone mad" reasons.
This grave is located in Uttoxeter New Road Cemetery, Derby.

The inscription in the centre of the cross is MS but I think this is just a generic makers mark.

Uttoxeter New Road Cemetery, Derby
This graveyard is rather large and very heavily populated with plots so it took several visits to locate it. Because the grave stone is on its face I had no choice but to identify it using adjacent plots.
