LOST THE PLOT ? WE CAN FIND IT !
Inaugurated towards the end of 2003, the Friends of Layton Cemetery are a group of volunteers dedicated to the cemetery's preservation, which is of great historical importance.
Owing to the Cosmopolitan makeup of the town of Blackpool there are a great many 'strays' buried in our local churchyards and cemeteries. By the 19th century people from the industrial working classes of Lancashire and Yorkshire began to flock to Blackpool which saw the town develop rapidly as a major tourist resort, whilst those who could afford it were eager to rent or buy property in the up and coming town.
