Fortean Times - - Letters -

I came across this head­stone amongst the graves in St Brid­get’s Church, West Kirby, when tak­ing part in the St Olave’s Vik­ing Her­itage Walk & Pilgrimage on 25 July 2017. You will see that it sim­ply says “Press”. No fore­names, dates or any­thing else at­trib­ut­able to who­ever is buried there. Is this a name or an in­struc­tion? What would hap­pen if I went across and pressed it? Forteans can ob­vi­ously come up with lots of ideas, prob­a­bly mostly re­lat­ing to Ge­orge A Romero films. I rang the vicar at the church who con­firmed that it is a grave and that it is as­sumed to re­late to a fam­ily name. He didn’t know who is buried there with­out delv­ing deep into the church records. Rob Gandy Wir­ral, Mersey­side
