On the south coast of England, one evening this week, I saw a sign to a cemetery and turned off my route to visit it. I was glad I did. It turned out to be an old cemetery with a host of interesting gravestones bearing some fine examples of grave art. I was captivated by this Ivy-clad headstone which marked the last resting place of Charlotte Ellen, wife of James Jilks, who died, aged 49, in 190?
I always record examples of clasped hands symbolism. I was fascinated to see this example supported on each side by a small angel. Has anyone seen anything similar?
