The Halifax Chartists
Below are photographs of the headstones of the leading Halifax Chartists Ben Rushton and John Culpan. Buried next to Rushton was another leading local figure in the movement Christopher Shackleton - his headstone has not survived and a modern plaque marks his burial place. These Chartist graves can be found in Lister Lane Cemetery in Halifax. The photographs were taken by Stuart Wilkinson and are reproduced with his permission.
