Gravestones for the Crossley Family of Halifax

Square Chapel



Many members of the Crossley family of Halifax, were buried at Square Chapel, Halifax. When the Chapel became derelict, the gravestones were taken to a yard at Dean Clough. They disappeared in 1982, and in 2010 they were found by Council workers in undergrowth in Exley Cemetery
