Have your say

I’m writing in response to the story on the front page of the Citizen (September 18) with regard to the extension of Chatteris cemetery and the positioning of graves/headstones.

I would like to point out that the interments have been carried out this way in Doddington churchyard in this way, for at least 30 years to my knowledge and it is the same at the new cemetery in Wimblington. Providing the traditional way of feet to the east is carried out this acceptable.

The memorials are placed this way so that the names are visible from the pathways.
