26th March 1940
Heavy rain all day. I had to go out to buy hay this evening, and got soaked right through. Very miserable. I noticed in passing the old Quaker Burial Ground in St. Helen’s Lane, next St. Helen’s Chapel, that it is being broken up for allotments, and two headstones, the oldest there, “RD 1699”, have been uprooted and stood against the side wall. This seems rather a pity.
