Leave our loved ones alone Ancestors should RIP

My brother, sister and myself are concerned about the proposed conversion of St John’s Church, Middle Handley, to a private residence.

The churchyard has been the peaceful resting place of our paternal grandparents since their deaths in 1945 and 1952 respectively.

It is quoted by a spokesperson for the church of England communication officer, that access would continue on the same basis as present. I cannot see this happening, as who would want strangers wandering around thier private property.

We say, ‘Show some respect and let our ancestors lie in peace’.
