Long Description:
Although this is not the grave of a real person, I thought it interesting enough to waymark. When the 1984 film 'A Christmas Carol' was shot in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England with George C. Scott playing the part of Scrooge, St. Chad's Church, Shrewsbury was used for a number of scenes and Scrooge's gravestone was placed in the graveyard. After the filming was over the gravestone was left in place.
