Because she was a ‘wicked person’, Minnie Dean was buried 8ft below ground, instead of the usual 6ft. And at the rear of the cemetery in an unmarked plot. For many years the grass above her grave did not grow, which helped fuel stories of Minnie Dean’s wickedness. This was in fact later attributed to a local gardener and his herbicide.
Her husband, Charles Dean died in 1908 and was buried 6ft down in the same grave.
