GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
This page will be dedicated in recording the Headstone Inscriptions, Graves and Cemeteries of our Ancestors final resting places. Some family members have very simple graves but rather grand headstones, whilst others have the complete opposite. They are surrounded by a rather elaborate grave but the headstone is almost paled into insignificance by its surroundings. Whilst others have graves and headstones fit for a king. Sadly some have no traces left with graves undiscernible from the lawns around it. Sometimes we find a wife or husbands headstone has the vacant space left beside it as thought eternally waiting to be reunited with their spouse - the space forever left vacant. This possibly indicates one of two things. The spouse remarried or moved away. A wealth of information can be found on even the smallest of headstones and because of this it becomes a rich and valued research tool for genealogists. Headstones do not simply signify a loved ones passing but is the very last physical act of love performed by the living for them and becomes an enduring link to them.
