Leicester Cathedral - October 2014

Visit to Site - 10th October 2014

FWA are continuing to reduce the ground levels to allow for the new floor build-up – insulation, limecrete slab and screen and the stone slabs. Human remains are discovered frequently, all carefully boxed up and stored on site following recording by ULAS

At the south –east corner of the chancel the columbarium ledger slab is lifted, including the slab section providing access to the interred jars of ashes below. Elsewhere on site another large vault is discovered, complete with a single coffin. A complicated methodology has to be devised with FWA, ULAS and P&M to allow FWA to lower the level of the vault without removing the coffin – it isn’t safe for anyone to go into the vault.
