The Drake Memorial Park is a cemetery unlike any other. It is a beautiful, natural park comprising open grassland areas separated by trees, shrubs and access roadways.
The graves are located within the Park's lawned areas, and are permanently identified with simple plaques which lie flat in the ground. There are no headstones or monuments, crowded together, as you find in many other cemeteries.
The open aspect of the Park provides an appropriate resting place of calm, quiet dignity for those who in their lifetime found pleasure in the beauty of the countryside, and contentment in the peace and seclusion of a rural setting. It is a fitting memorial to the departed, and a place of solace for the bereaved.
