Litter pickers were left ‘gobsmacked’ after uncovering a grave belonging to possible ancestors of Walt Disney in an overgrown churchyard. The plot was discovered by community service workers and church volunteers during a clear up of bushes and brambles at St Margaret’s Church, in Quadring, Lincolnshire, last week.

They uncovered the final resting place of William and Mary Disney and their son Richard, who died in 1766, 1765 and 1779 respectively. It is believed they were blood relatives of animation pioneer Walt, who always believed his family came from nearby Norton Disney, Lincolnshire.
