Dorothy Ann Venus

Dorothy Ann Venus was the wife of Israel Venus who hanged himself in his tripe shop in Saltwell Lane, which was behind the market, approximately where the rear of the Alum House Ham is. He is buried in St Stephens Churchyard.

This grave site can be found in section 2C in the North East area of the graveyard. (see cemetery plan) Section 2C runs parallel with Baltic Ct. As you can see the stone is starting to lean and I fear that with latest proposals to lay flat all gravestones within the cemetery which are deemed unsafe, it will flattened and the inscription lost forever.
