Tombstone Tuesday: Almost Disappeared!
While we were mooching around at St. Peter’s churchyard, Mithian, Cornwall at the end of May, we took various photos of graves and I thought this one was particularly striking as it was virtually disappearing in the very overgrown plantlife there!
This grave is not for one of my partner Paul’s ancestors, but I transcribe it here for posterity as the Graveyard Rabbit for this churchyard.
It possibly states at the top: Sacred to the Memory of
died Nov. 18th. 1888
Aged 80 years
also of MARY ANN
wife of the above
died Oct. 6th. 1889
aged 59 years
(more here but unreadable)
I think it looks kind of nice with the ivy growing over the headstone, but somehow think that with the long grass and other overgrowing plantlife, it won’t be too long before it is completely covered! I will keep an eye on it and rescue it from being covered if it becomes necessary!!
