Does anybody know if this grave would still contain the coffin/remains? I'm sure they were moved but apparently there is still a headstone at the bottom of someones garden.....

That roman coffin has been mentioned before on here - see http://www.secretleeds.com/forum/Messages.aspx?ThreadID=3848

Thanks for the reminder about the cache though - I still haven't 'done' that one.

These are actually all that is left from a former archaeology display formerly kept in a nearby house.I too thought the6 were from the area until Dave Wheldrake the former Education Officer for West Yorkshire Archaeology told me the truth on a guided walk in the area some years back.
He did also confirm though that the small round hump near the Oates memorial stone off Stonegate Road is a round barrow when i took him to look at it.This therefore must be in with a chance as oldest grave!

Try St James church at Seacroft or Lawnswood cemetary.
