A Pictorial Series
of Windsor Views from the past and present
At first glance the photograph above
of the chapel in the grounds of Windsor Cemetery seems much the
same as the chapel today, pictured below, however the current
chapel features a reconstructed steeple. This suggests that the
chapel in the postcard above is the one that was demolished when
it fell into disrepair a number of years ago.

Patrick Young Alexander, Pioneer
Aviator, born 1867, died 7th July 1943, aged 76. Mr Alexander
was a former master and benefactor of Imperial
Service College when in Windsor.
The headstone of Patrick Young
By shere co-incidence, the author found
P Y Alexander's grave stone while researching the story about
Thomas Brown who also died on 7th July but 28 years earlier
in 1915. His grave is very close by to the left of Alexander's
grave. (Grave AN 147)
