Lychgates and Depositories
Managed By: Icon Here The Lych Mob
Description:
Originally Lychgates were a covered gateway used as the temporary resting place for a casket or corpse awaiting burial. They generally were located at a cemetery or church to provide protection from the elements. Depositories, though differing in appearance and placement, served essentially the same purpose.

This lychgate is located at the south east corner of St John the Baptist churchyard in Malden, Surrey. There is no date shown on the lychgate and nothing can be found online but I estimate it dates from the 19th century.

Notre-Dame du Mont Carmel was the first large church I visited in Atlantic Canada and it impressed me greatly. Almost as picturesque is its cemetery, with its rows and rows of little white headstones with white crosses atop.
