When you get there, in the right hand gate post to the cemetery there is a brass door, behind it should be a book of remembrance, sign the book, if the book isn't there report to the nearest C.W.G.
The frogs are after closing some of the cemetery's,
they want the land back, one of their excuses is no one visits, bull, they deliberately steal the books.
