KILLED BY LIGHTNING

My condolences go out to the families of Douglas Lane and his two friends who were struck by lightning while they were sheltering from a storm on Southampton Common in the Summer of 1955.

There are guided tours around the cemetery, but mainly to see the graves of bodies recovered from the ocean after The Titanic went down. The cemetery makes a pleasant walk and some moving reading.
