Brotton Church

1935; as you can see is the date of this cutting believed to be from the Northern Echo and the end of an era for the church. Malcolm Moore tells us: ”Just behind the church was a gravestone with a skull and cross-bones on it.  As kids we were convinced it was the local pirate.” Jackie Rushton queries: “I recently paid a visit to Brotton on my ancestry trail, I was disappointed to find few old headstones in the churchyard. I can see in this photograph there are headstones. What happened to them does anyone know?”
