Comments: Since the Sharon Church closed its and doors about two years ago the building itself has been sold, a small chapel has been built beside the cemetery - at present not quite finished. Don Bowman has been responsible for looking after much of the church property that needed to be disposed of. He also lives close to the cemetery.
I was impressed with the neatness of the cemetery, the trees around it, and the quality of the headstones.
