|The Account Book|
As part of my project to document selected entries in William Brown's account book I have examined his account with the Churchwardens at Tring. In June 1851 he was asked to make drawings and estimates for a wall round the proposed new cemetery, and in November 1852 he sold off wood from a piece of land purchased from Mr Norman, which would appear to be the Cemetery site. I have added a map, a press account of the consecration of the site, and links to modern pictures showing what is there now.
The folio in the account book also refers to a "lighting rate" (to pay for gas street lighting), work on an unidentified property in Frogmore Street, and work to be done on Tring's Poors Land.
