So far we have never seen a snake in the Cemetery but there are slow worms.

There are wild (or semi-wild) cats that frequent the Cemetery and the garden of the Lodge, as do hedgehogs and mice and there is at least one resident fox, often heard on winter nights but rarely seen. UPDATE: On Saturday 15th March 2008 at about 4am the fox was heard barking in the Cemetery and then seen to casually stroll past the front of the Cemetery Lodge.

We believe the hole on this grave to be the results of a Badger burrowing
