Brockhall Hospital Cemetery, St Leonards Church, Old Langho

Following the sale of Brockhall Hospital to the developer Gerald Hitman, in 1993 a memorial was erected on the site of the hospital graveyard. This memorial named all the residents who had been buried there, the vast majority of whom – in stark contrast to the cemetery of St Leonard’s Church next door – had been interred in unmarked plots.
