There name liveth for ever more, they do write some funny things on some grave stones this is why I enjoy visiting graveyards.

I love this cemetery. There is so much history. I've seen the war graves in the back corner but I've never noticed these. I will look on my next visit

re. your comment on writing on gravestones, my grandfather - a monumental mason in Kent is reputed to have engraved the following silly: "It wasn't the cough that carried him off, 'twas the coffin they carried him off in. A lovely photo thank you.

It's moving to see that one of the inscriptions has poppy cross placed there,I would imagine on Remembrance Sunday . Almost 100 years after his death this mans family pays thier respects in this way, quite remarkable.

The inscription says it all, and so they should.

Not far from here where I live, there is the village of Mells which was Jack Horner's "Plum". In the graveyard there is the tomb of Seigfried Sassoon. Whenever I have visited it (he was such a wonderful poet), there has always been a cross with a poppy in front of the gravestone.
