Tombstone Tuesday: Nature’s Floral Tribute
For today’s Tombstone Tuesday I want to show this photo that we took at St. Peter’s Church, Mithian, Cornwall on May 31st this year.
It just seemed to me that the wild flowers growing all around the tombstone were making their own tribute to what may be a long forgotton grave. I could be wrong but there were no signs of any visit, no old dead flowers, no vase, no flattened grass to place something here.
This is not the grave of one of our ancestors, but as the Graveyard Rabbit for St. Peter’s I transcribed the tombstone as best I could.
The tombstone reads:
loving memory of
the wife of
T. Dennis …(?)
November 13th 1878(?)
Thomas Dennis …(this word covered by the ivy)
We noticed that there were a few other tombstones here with the surname Edwards but like this one, there were no signs at all of anyone visiting these graves.
