The first entry is in a family plot held in perpetuity, Arthur Henry Bacon being buried March 29 1923 followed by Mary Amy Bacon on 31 August 1927 - his wife? Both were 54 at death. The first interment fee was higher - 5 14s, presumably as the plot had to be opened; the second was 3 17 s 6d.

The second entry shows a common grave where none of the individuals were related. Five adults were buried here over the period March 31 to April 13 1923. Were they buried side by side or on top of each other? A standard charge of 1 3s was made for each interment - under a third of the cost of the second Bacon burial.

A sixth name, Jack Samuel Williams, is crossed out and he may not have been buried here. His age at death was just 3 hours. His birth was registered in Brentford in the April-June quarter of 1923 and his mother was formerly a Saunders. There were other Williams births where the mother was formerly a Suanders in Brentford Registration District: Donald V Williams in the Jul-Sep quarter 1925 and Leslie W Williams in the Jan-Mar quarter of 1929.
