Where is the plaque from Eastwood Cemetery?

SHORTLY before Christmas 2012, I was surprised and concerned to notice that the plaque commemorating the opening of March’s Eastwood Cemetery in the 1930s and positioned on the right side brick support as you enter through the main gates, was not in place.

Since my observation, I have neither read of nor heard any explanation to account for its disappearance. The plaque was inscribed with the names of members representing the then called March Urban District Council, who had been instrumental in the creation of Eastwood Cemetery, for the use of the people of March and surrounding area, and had been present at the opening ceremony.

Surely this plaque, in place for more than 70 years and a part of the history and heritage of March, would be of interest to many; so I write to your paper in the hope of discovering why it is no longer there and if it will be replaced
