It comprises 35 acres and is split into two portions by Chanterlands Avenue. It holds the last resting places of two famous Hull artists, the memo rial to the R.38 airship disaster, the two graves of the victims of the Dogger Bank Incident when the Russian Imperial Navy fired upon the Hull Trawler fleet as well as many other graves of notable Hull citizens.”
