Cemetery notes and/or description:
Higher Cemetery at Heavitree was opened in 1866. This is one of three active cemeteries in Exeter. They cover approximately 30 hectares and are the resting place for over 100,000 former residents including victims of cholera epidemics, and of the Exeter Blitz.
It has a number of historic monuments including the Theatre Royal Fire memorial of 1887 and World War 2 memorial. The cemetery has been expanded on at least three occasions since then. Over 70,000 people are buried in the cemetery and there are currently over 12,000 memorials. (text by Geoffrey Gillon)
