This cemetery was used by the residents of Rowsell’s Island. There was no suitable land on the Island
to bury their dead, so they brought them across by boat to the Cull’s Island for burial, hoisted them
up a cliff and carried them to a small cemetery about 1 mile from Leading Tickles.
When I was led to the site in 1990 by Mark Rowsell, an elderly resident
of Leading Tickles, the path was unmarked and the cemetery
was completely overgrown. There is no way I could
have found it without his help.
