Photo by SkakelPencil marks in a photograph of a crypt in a building. These marks were made by construction people around and even over a hundred years ago yet are so well preserved today. They probably indicate the way that crypts were sold to buyers.Apr 24, 2014
IMGP1778.JPG
Photo by SkakelA Photograph of a similar crypt in another building of the era. Photograph shows the second "Venting System" to allow gasses and noxious fumes to escape to the vents above the building. Otherwise pressures can build up and the crypts have been known to actually explode causing injuries to people and destruction of remains. Apr 24, 2014

We cannot of course file photographs of unused crypts in Chatham, but this photograph shows the almost certain construction of the building itself .
