A focal point throughout Nicholson's life
Norman Nicholson is buried in the churchyard of St George's, Millom. In 2000 a memorial window created by Christine Boyce was installed. The window (left) depicts various scenes and themes from Norman's writings. An explanation can be found on the Cleo website (Cumbria and Lancashire Education Online).
To locate the grave of Norman and Yvonne Nicholson: walk past the church into the graveyard and turn right into the 'new' extended section facing Black Combe. Follow the path down round a hairpin bend and take the first paved path on the right. You'll see a seat placed with its back to the wall. The grave is directly in front of the seat. The diagram below indicates the route.
