In the photos, most of the floor seems to be gone – is the space which has now been opened up the crypt proper, or is that located at a deeper level? The bishop said in one report that the crypt was intact..
as far as i can remember the crypt runs the whole length of the cathedral,you enter it at a lower level, about 12/14 foot under the back door to the cathedral .it only seems to be the back end of the crypt that has collapsed. the floor holding the stone alter is obviously re-inforced, so maybe the front bit of the crypt is intact. unfortunatly i think the old high alter was at the back of the crypt, the statue of the sacred heart is towards the front i think,as are the graves.
