This colonial find is a peacefull place to visit. This cemetery is a short walk uphill behind the National Museum. There are 163 graves of youngsters and elders who came to Sri Lanka from England and north Britain. The most striking aspect of a visit to this melancholy place is just how young most people were when they died – if you made it to forty you were of a very ripe old age. Some of the deaths were due to sunstroke, elephants or jungle fever. The Cargills of supermarket fame lie here.
