Green plaque № 11528 in Kendal

The SEPULCHRE.
Sepulchre Lane lies on the boundary of a medieval chapel close from which this burial ground was bought and enclosed in 1656 by Kendal Quakers for £9.3.0d. It was extended to accommodate Underbarrow's Quakers when their burial ground was ploughed up by a renegade member and was closed to burials in 1855. In 1863 the graves were levelled and part of it was made into a garden. It was altered again in 1989 by Russell Armer Ltd. when they converted the neighbouring school to housing.
