Editor Of The Oxford Chronicle
I was wondering around the cemetery of Mill Street on Osney today and was amazed at the number of Commonwealth War Graves in the cemetery, which I didn't know we had Commonwealth War Graves so close to the city centre, I knew that there CWG at the cemetery in in Botley but never knew about the ones in Mill Street. One of the graves that I found interesting was in a state of disrepair, lying on the ground if Mr Henry Cuthertson who died in 1903 and was the editor of the Oxford Chronicle. I am sure that the position of Editor of the Oxford Chronicle would have been well respected in 1903 and it is a shame that a person who had this position with in the local community is now resting in a grave that is not in the condition that you would expect. Very concerning, and a little disappointing.
