Leading off Pinehurst Road ( just before you reach the shops ) is Priory Road, and here is the local cemetery, established in 1932 [ when the graveyard at St. Mary the Virgin became too small ], which has recently been enlarged; it is a quiet spot for remembrance of loved ones no longer with us. The Cemetery is managed by the Town Council - the images below include the newly installed ( in November 2020 ) gateway which replaced the earlier wooden archway - which was taken down in summer 2020 as it was becoming unsafe.
If you walk a little way inside the gates along the main access trackway - and look to your left - you'll see what appears to be a plain white headstone just off the walk. This marks the memorial to Molly Hare, one of the names on the village War Memorial, who was a young woman resident in West Moors at the outbreak of the Second World War, and who served in the WAAF. The details are on the opposite side of the stone. This is the only 'war grave' in the cemetery. She was one of the 'unaccounted' losses during that war, though there is a little more detail about Molly in the linked document relating to the War Memorial inscriptions - see the entry via the " West Moors: Today & Yesteryear " page on this web site - see the bottom of this page. For some images, see the panel at the bottom of this page for photographs taken in 2021.
