  Grave of the three Salter children (taken Spring)
by magyarozag

At the bottom of the graveyard between two nearly illegible gravestones is a small wooden sign which reads:

"Behind the grave of Lifeboatman Moses Munt, who was drowned along with Thomas Cotton during the rescue of the Sirenia in 1888, lies that of the Salter family.
On April 5th 1913, the three children, Ethel, Albert and Vera, drowned whilst collecting winkles on the beach off Chilton Chine"

It is a nice little thing to see, especially in Spring when both stones are surrounded with daffodils (as shown in picture)

Address: St. Mary's Church
